Village to village hiking in Riversondend, South Africa

The three villages of Greyton, McGregor and Montagu form an almost perfect line across totally unspoilt nature reserves in the Western Cape, South Africa.  To this day, there isn't a better way to get from Greyton to McGregor other than along the beautiful Bosmanskloof hiking route over the Riversonderend Mountains.

We'd recommend staying at Lady Grace in Greyton: this cute cottage has a pretty courtyard garden filled with quirky objets trouves and a collection of four bijoux bedrooms decorated in soothing pastels. 

Wonderous and seemingly infinite valleys along the Bosmanskloof Trail

In total, it's 16km (although you can do an 'out and back' of 4km too from Greyton) and is punctuated by cool and deep mountain water rock pools. You can expect to see carcal, sunbirds, buzzards and baboons coupled with an almost total absence of humans. You can hike one way. Stuck for how to get back from McGregor? Don't worry, McGregor Tourism on 028 254 9414 can get you a taxi back. You will need a permit for this trail.
