About the Hogsback Area

Listen to our Podcast from SAFM Listen to Jenny's podcast telling SAFM listeners all about the area of Hogsback and Laragh-on-Hogsback.

Hogsback is a nature lover's paradise - a mountain hamlet surrounded by the Elandsberg, Amathole Mountains, the Hogs - 3 mountains with ridges that resemble the 'bristles' of a Hog - and Gaika's Kop. It is in the heart of Frontier Country where the 8th Frontier war was started.

Walking trails through the forests include the Big Tree - a 300-year-old Yellow Wood. The Arboretum - a living museum of the different trees found in Hogsback - is en route to the 39-steps waterfall, one of the many spectacular waterfalls to visit. The Amathole trail - a grueling 6-day hike - ends in Hogsback near the Swallow Tail waterfall. Abseiling is an option at the popular Madonna & Child waterfall. Kettle Spout waterfall offers panoramic views across the Tyume Valley.

There are over 200 species of birds including the endangered Cape Parrot. Look out for the rare Samango monkey. For the more active, there are mountain bikes for hire, fly-fishing on the nearby farms, and horse riding.

4 distinct seasons offer amazing photographic opportunities. Spring is beautiful - garden enthusiasts are welcome to visit show gardens on an organized garden tour during this season. Summer is delightfully warm with waterfalls in full spate. The autumnal trees are a splash of splendid colours as the trees shed their leaves. Winter offers great anticipation for snow, a source of great delight for one and all.

Enjoy spectacular sunrises over the Hogs! Experience the breathtaking moonlit evenings at full moon.
