Elgin & Surrounds
“Valley of a thousand pleasures…”
Over the mountain and far away, yet near enough to reach Cape Town International Airport within 30 minutes, Elgin and surrounds is a world of peaceful farm dams, majestic mountains and fragrant orchards and vineyards. Sir Lowry’s Pass offers spectacular views over False Bay, and the scenic N2 highway sweeps down into our valley, winding through the forests and the historic Houw Hoek Pass.
This fertile valley has been sought after since long before the first formal road was built in 1830, with the first farmers trekking over the hazardous mountains by ox wagon to stake their claims in this then remote valley. Today the region is world famous for its fruit trees, cool-climate wines and roses and it is an integral part of the Four Passes Fruit Route.
Elgin offers healthy natural entertainment for every taste: private game reserves, nature walks, birding, 4×4 routes, quad-biking, mountain-biking, waterskiing, motorised water sports, bass and trout fishing, abseiling, kloofing, hiking, canoeing and team-building and its associated activities. A variety of sports facilities, such as golf, rowing, fly-fishing, cricket, rugby, soccer, bowls, tennis and squash entice the visitor to enjoy every day in our green valley. An important social upliftment program, run by the DBSA, is being implemented in nearby Grabouw. This makes the region one of the leaders in applying a holistic approach to development.
