After many years, I recently got to experience Hogsback and all of its enchantment again and it didn’t disappoint. If you’re a lover of forests and all things natural, this is one place that won’t dissatisfy. Within the densely forested mountains that are famous for its many waterfalls and panoramic views, you’ll ﬁnd many different hiking routes, natural products at Essential Amathole, crystals just a way down the road, the arboretum for the tree lover, the Eco-Shrine, Labyrinth and a few adventure activities at Hogsback Adventures. I stayed the most amazing cottage called Danesworld, it was cozy yet spacious and modern yet rustic. We awoke to valleys covered in mist and cows grazing outside our farm cottage – it was splendid! Look out for the Samango Monkey and the Cape Parrot (who is critically endangered) while you’re here as they’re not a common occurrence across South Africa.
