Tired of all the usual holiday spots and want to experience a new scene? Then Hogsback is the location for you. Hogsback is one of the Eastern Cape’s most riveting locales and finds itself just an hour and a half out of Grahamstown. Hogsback is named after three mountain peaks which peculiarly resemble the wild hogs that can be seen around this area.
It also has some of the most dramatic scenery to be found anywhere in South Africa as it lies in close proximity to the foreboding Amatola Mountain ranges and is itself ensconced in a lush forested terrain. It is said to have been the inspiration behind JRR Tolkien’s legendary Lord of the Rings trilogy and it isn’t hard to see why. Hogsback seems almost otherworldly and combines the sublime and ominous in a very overt manner. Enchanting and fascinating, the lower regions of the village are sometimes encased in snow and the stillness is broken up only by the chirps of birds or the chatter of the Simango monkeys that are also found in this forest.
It’s terrific for exploration with various hikes taking you deep into this hallowed terrain and showcasing the very best of its resplendent scenery. Once you’re through having a look around the forest, the Hogsback gardens are bound to mesmerize you also; with an abundance of exotic plants from destinations in Europe and Australia nature lovers will immensely enjoy walking through these idyllic gardens. Other favourite activities in Hogsback include mountain climbing, trout fishing, mountain biking, and bird watching.
