Area Info:

Montagu is a scenic two-hour drive from Cape Town, surrounded by the majestic Langeberg Mountains, in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Lying between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn on the renowned Cape Route 62, the longest wine route in the world, Montagu offers a range of attractions, from healing hot springs to historic museums that are well worth a visit. Montagu’s most famous attraction is its hot mineral springs that reside at a temperature of 43c. Spend your days relaxing in the warm, healing waters and feel the tension of everyday city life melt away. Spending time in Montagu is a great way to unwind. There is an extensive list of activities to enjoy such as fishing, riverboat trips up the Breede River, and a circular walk through the idyllic Montagu Nature Garden. Adrenaline junkies will get a thrill out of mountain biking, abseiling, and paragliding. While here, make sure you visit Sambona Wildlife Reserve, Montagu Golf Club, Leidam Bird Sanctuary, and the Montagu Village Market, held each Saturday, which offers everything from local and organic produce to hand-crafted gifts.
