Step into Hogsback and you step into a town that’s defined by its soaring Amathole Mountains and luscious Afro-montane forests.
This Eastern Cape getaway is known to draw people out of the busy city-life and into a world where the peaceful surroundings of nature make for the perfect holiday destination. Rumour has it that this magical place acquired its name because one of the three mountain peaks it’s situated under resembles a hog’s back.
One of the very first people to reside in this village was a gardener by the name of Thomas Summerton. This Oxford-born Englishman is responsible for the beautiful gardens found in Hogback – many of which were modeled after the concept of the English countryside and contain an array of beautiful fruit and flowering plants. These gardens are also home to many exotic plants from all over the world.
The village is a popular tourist attraction and boasts beautiful experiences of hiking, trail running, mountain biking and trout fishing. However, possibly the most interesting thing about the village is that it is said to have been a place of inspiration for Lord of the Rings author, J.R.R Tolkien.
It is advised that Hogsback must be experienced on foot. The hiking trails vary for those who love short walks and those who like more of a challenge, and each hike produces stunning views. Some of the popular hikes to try out are: The Labyrinth at the Edge, Madonna and Child Falls, The Three Hogs and The Bluff Walk.
A beautiful village must therefore sell beautiful flowers and our florists in Hogsback make sure that flowers are available for every occasion.
