EXPLORE Grabouw


Grabouw is a town with a country charm situated along the N2 just 65km south-east of Cape Town in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. 

Grabouw is also located in the Elgin Valley, the lushest scenic area in the Western Cape - Southern Africa’s largest fruit producing area. Being in the Elgin Valley, Grabouw forms part of the world’s first biodiversity wine route known as the Green Mountain Eco Route together with nearby towns like Villiersdorp, Bot River and Houw Hoek.  The town was built on a farm in the 1850s by a German farmer who subsequently named it after his birth town Grabau. Since then, agriculture has immensely flourished and has contributed much to the town’s economic growth.  
Grabouw is a very quiet and tranquil town and it is a great destination for those seeking an “off-the-beaten-track” experience. The old-country charm, antiquated buildings and the never-ending greenery in the town will suit your pursuit of that alternative accommodation experience perfectly. 
Grabouw is famous for its rich forestry and the abundance of fynbos together with another 1600 species of plants- 150 of which are endemic to the area. A visit to the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve is a great start to exploring these magnificent plants. There are many other attractions in Grabouw that are well worth your visit.  Farm touring is a popular activity in the area, from wine farms to fruit farms, a day can be well spent while tasting some great wines and delicious locally-grown fruit. 
Situated in a valley, hikes on the Hottentots Holland trail can be enjoyed as well as mountain biking and bird watching. Grabouw also hosts an array of social events all year round. From marathons, mountain bike races to fun walks and festivals, the town has more to offer than what meets the eye.
