Montagu is a peaceful town in the heart of Route 62 and also the starting point of another area known as the Little Karoo. Although small in size, this town has an incredible amount to offer to tourists of all interest groups.

Montagu has incredible rock formations in close vicinity to the town which can be reached by either hiking or taking a short drive. These rock formations are also home to some very impressive caves in the area, of which Guano Caves are the most impressive. Activities such a abseiling, rock-climbing and hiking are a treat.

Perhaps one of the most impressive aspects of Montagu is its natural warm water springs. With various resorts you can choose from, you can experience the tranquil and relaxing natural pleasures in warm spring baths or pools. Many of the resorts have day passes, so it is not compulsory to book accommodation.

Various wine estates with beautiful vineyards surround the town, so wine tasting or a laid-back picnic is highly recommended.

Montagu is also a town with rich history as can be seen from the Cape Dutch architecture and many national monument status of various buildings found all over. A leisurely walk down the streets will definitely result in interesting finds such as local shops with dried fruits, arts and crafts stores and historic points of interest.
