This area covers the main walking (as in hill). in Montagu. footpaths are marked well in some cases but not others, this needs better management but overall after you have paid entrance fee you will have a long memorable day for all that..

We came back via Route 62 on our trip along the Garden Route, minimal traffic, great roads and scenery, great little places to stop and have a drink and a meal. Slower pace than the N2 but really enjoyable miles fly by.
