Located high up in the stunning beautiful Amatola Mountains, the hamlet of Hogsback is reminiscent of a bygone era, where life is slow and tranquil and one can enjoy the beauty of nature at its best.

Feed your soul at Laragh-on-Hogsback where nature is timeless and infinite. Relax on your covered patio; listen to the sounds of the forest around you – birdsongs in the morning, the chirping of insects in the evening.

Enjoy the stupendous full moon rising over the three Hogs or get-up early and watch the glorious sunrises. Gaze at Tor Doone in anticipation of your walks to the several waterfalls set amongst one of the few sub-tropical mountain forests left in South Africa.

The Arboretum - a living museum of the different trees found in Hogsback - is en route to the 39-steps waterfall, one of the many spectacular waterfalls to visit. The Amathole trail - a grueling 6-day hike - ends in Hogsback near the Swallow Tail waterfall. Abseiling is an option at the popular Madonna & Child waterfall. Kettle Spout waterfall offers panoramic views across the Tyume Valley.

There are over 200 species of birds including the endangered Cape Parrot. Look out for the rare Samango monkey. For the more active, there are mountain bikes for hire, fly-fishing on the nearby farms, and horse riding.
