EXPLORE Montagu


Set on the slopes of the beautiful Witbosrivier nature Reserve, Montagu offers an abundance of accommodation of all kinds to suit the tastes of ever traveler.


 


 

Cut off from the main trek routes due to the seemingly impenetrable nature of Cogmans Kloof, it wasn’t until after Thomas Bain had built the pass and tunnel that trade began to develop in the area.

In 1841 the then Colonial Secretary of the Cape, John Montagu, visited the infant town to inspect the farm that had been laid out. In 1873 the Montagu Hot Springs began charging a “ticky” for using the baths in the area.

Surrounded by Western Cape farming land, the area boasts vast plains amid orchids and vineyards, which produce South Africa's favourite fruit, nuts and wines. A scenic drive from Cape Town to Montagu takes a little over two hours and is often frequented as an easy weekend away for those coming from the bustling city. For those visitors of the Western Cape who are looking at seeing as much as possible, Montagu provides a central location. Driving distance from Stellenbosch, Cape Town as well as the citrus capital of the Western Cape, Ceres.

Experience old country charm and exceptionally friendly service at any Montagu establishment the rustic and relaxing atmosphere will ease you into your vacation at once on arrival. Montagu is the perfect destination to find family accommodation at affordable rates or enjoy a romantic holiday to celebrate your honeymoon or anniversary.
With the springs being an extremely popular destination for travelers both local and international, the area has grown substantially from its humble beginnings and is home to many Guest Houses, bed & Breakfasts, Safari Lodges as well as self-catering houses. If you are looking for seclusion and privacy, Dew Cottage provides great value for money for its self-catering house. Or if you are wanting wide spanning views of nature and wildlife then the African Game Lodge is for you.
