The Langkloof

The Fruit Route, better known as the Langkloof, lies in the valley between the Kamanasie and Kouga mountains in the north, and the Outeniqua- Langkloof and Tsitsikamma mountains in the south.

This area, which stretches along the valley for more than 160km, used to be the home ground of Bushmen and Gonagua Hottentots. Today it is the second largest fruit production area in South Africa - specialising in apples and pears, with many other varieties of fruit also grown.

Joubertina is the main town in the Langkloof. In 1807 the Reverend W.A.Joubert of Uniondale established a Dutch Reformed rural community on the Langkloof farm. The Reverend was totally against alcohol, and one of his conditions for the community was that no alcohol was to be sold within the town. This law still applies today, although the town is much larger and therefore there are "watering holes" in the town.

The Langkloof boasts many activities, including 4x4, Horse Riding, Trekking, Fishing, visiting farms and Helicopter rides. It is also the home of early Bushmen paintings and the famous Kouga Mummy. The only mummy ever found in the southern hemisphere. Within easy reach of the N2, the famous R62 winds through the tranquil Langkloof Valley, offering many places to stay, from an isolated log cabin to full guesthouse hospitality.
