Hottentots Holland Mountains of the Western Cape

Hottentots Holland Mountain Range
The Hottentots Holland Mountains, Apple, Pear, Peach and Nectarine country

Almost equidistant between Hermanus and Cape Town lies the beautiful Hottentots Holland mountain range. The excellent N2 national road must negotiate the Sir Lowry’s and the Houwhoek mountain passes. The recently upgraded road is in superb condition and is well graded and contoured.

This region is the heart of the Western Cape’s successful fruit-growing export industry. Apple, pear, peach and nectarine orchards are interspersed with established vineyards.

These beautiful fruit farms and vineyards lie nestled together in the sheltered and fertile green valleys of the Hottentots Holland mountains. Many of the famous vineyards in this area contribute substantially to the renowned South African wine export trade. See a slideshow of 24 images
