Highlights
 
Elgin Valley
Located in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, the Elgin Valley stretches between the Kogelberg Nature Reserve and the Groenland Winery. It is one of South Africa’s top apple producers. The undulating landscape is characterised by deep valleys, forests, mountain streams, lakes and rivers, and lush hills covered with vineyards and apple orchards. This outdoor adventure mecca offers visitors a wide selection of activities including: swimming, apple-picking, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, river cruises, ziplining, bird watching and wine tasting. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample locally-made craft cider and visit the UNESCO protected Kogelberg Reserve.
