Hogsback is located in the Eastern Cape province between Queenstown, Grahamstown and East-London. It is beautifully situated in the Amathole Mountains, making it a beautiful vacation destination.

The three ‘mountains without top’, the beautiful panoramic view, endless forests covered in mysterious morning mist; here humans and animals awaken in a glorious sunrise and enjoy nature and tranquility.

The call of the Knysna Loerie and the murmur in the canopy of the trees where Samango monkeys play are the few noises – besides the singing of other birds – that you hear. You can imagine that Hogsback has an attraction for nature lovers throughout the year. Go for walks, bike rides or go horseback riding to conquer the mountains and cool off at one of the fairy-tale waterfalls. Mountain streams and the native forest, hills and valleys remind you of the world of Tolkien. And that’s no wonder, because he spent his childhood here. Just like many other writers who wrote beautiful works here, inspired by the environment.

In this world of exceptional beauty you can see different eagles floating on the thermals and in the afternoon you can hear and see the Cape Parrots in the Yellowwood trees.

Hogsback offers you beautiful gardens with influences from all over the world where garden lovers from all over South Africa come to this earthly paradise.

Hogsback is a place to relax and if nature alone can’t give you that, you can also go here for a relaxing massage. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city, enjoy nature, be active, read a good book or plan a romantic stay with a loved one.
