Experience the magic of Hogsback
Hogsback owes its dramatic natural beauty and landscape to the Amathole Mountains of the Eastern Cape. It was named after ridges on the Amathole range that resemble a hog's back. The area is also known by its Xhosa name, Qabimbola, meaning 'red clay on the face', which is used by Xhosa people during traditional initiations.
The village is surrounded by indigenous forest, has several waterfalls and boasts stunning views. Activities in the area include walking, mountain biking, birdwatching (there are more 100 species, including the Cape parrot and Knysna lourie), mountain climbing and trout fishing. While there make sure you also experience the longest labyrinth in South Africa.
