South Africa Tourism Awards

Type: Destination
Category: Service Excellence

Motivation for award: As per our nomination: “The beautiful town of Montagu is situated on Route 62 approximately 2 hours drive from Cape Town. Montagu, and is famous for being the “Gateway to the Little Karoo”, for being the home of Dried Fruit, and for its amazing natural Hot Springs! Follow Cogmanskloof as it cuts its way through intensely folded sandstone mountains until you pop through the hole in the wall into a whole new world of magic and sensual pleasure. This amazing town has a rich cultural and heritage background, a relaxed atmosphere, clean air and friendly town folk! Expect the unexpected!” What makes Montagu extra special is the fact that it appeals to all the senses… Whether it is the sounds of silence only a mountain can provide Birdsongs or friendly chatter at the market The taste of delectable peaches, apricots, apples, pears and good food The sweet aroma of Muskadel and fresh mountain air The warm rays of sunshine or smell of roses The visionary explosion of a Karoo night sky The colourful view of “sidewalk life” Or the touch of cold rock under your fingers, natural spring water on your skin or the feel of a good massage and many different alternative therapies Accommodation varies from 5 star hotels to friendly B&B’s for every taste, as well as exciting Guest Farms, Mountain Retreats and good old camping. Now that the “family holiday” is back in fashion and camping, tents and caravans are all the rage, it is time to rediscover the joy of simple holidays close to home yet far from the rush of the city. Montagu is ideal for these types of holidays where you can again indulge and give your children the privilege to experience the things we enjoyed as children – swimming in dams, braaiing at campsites, walking through the countryside, smelling fresh unpolluted air, eating fruit straight from the trees, experiencing real farm life and generally indulging the senses. Montagu is indeed that authentic magical destination that never fail to surprize, makes you fall in love and at least return again and again. The Montagu-Ashton Tourism office present this destination with pride and confidence and service excellence on all levels.

This perfect getaway in the Langeberg, near the Robertson Wine Valley and not far from the Breede River Valley, takes some time to explore. The beautiful town of Montagu, famous for more than its Hot Springs is the perfect retreat for eco, wellness and adventure sports, as well as golfing holidays, wine and food! Montagu is situated on Route 62 approximately 2 hours drive from Cape Town and leads into the Little Karoo. Look forward to a whole new world of magic and sensual pleasure as you pop through the hole in the wall at Kogmanskloof with its amazing geological folds, faults and a British fort from 1899. Accommodation in Montagu for all tastes is as diverse as Montagu itself.

Tourism Office that is very much part of the community, in both spirit and contribution. Great service, ready with information and advice, always ready to help. Makes an important contribution to making Montagu what it is and committed to the welfare of the broader community with its feeding schemes, calling for public support as with recent bush fires, etc. Deserve recognition.

Montagu is a place not to be missed! Switch off from the hustle and bustle of big towns and jam-packed roads. Have lived in Montagu for 19 years and they will have to eventually carry me out of here! MATA does a sterling job in Montagu.

Montagu is a beautiful town with lovely people! Everyone is so welcoming and takes pride in their town! Once you go through the hole in the mountain coming from Cape Town, it’s very difficult to return!

Montagu- Tourism is the best tourism office in South Afric. Always friendly, respond on mails, help with marketing on social media. Give the best service when you look for a place to sleep or eat. Give daily feedback on events and what to do when you visit Montagu. What a privilege to have a tourism office like that. You are the best.

My family and I moved to Montagu a little over 12 months ago, at a time where Tourism was struggling through the effects of the global pandemic. Montagu was truly affected in so many ways by the down turn in overseas tourism but to see the drive of The Montagu Ashton Tourism Association you would never think this was the case. This town is the epitome of togetherness and sense of community and this is driven by MATA. Mareletta Van Zyl Mundy and Anne-Marie Coetze live and breathe this town and you can’t help but get caught up in their passion and drive for Montagu. This town is thriving and we are loving seeing the number of South Africans discovering our little piece of Karoo paradise.

I have two sentimental reasons to love Montagu. First, the landscape of the place is incredibly beautiful, truly breathtaking. Secondly, it is the town where we made our last mortgage payment for our house at ABSA Bank. Go find your own reasons for celebrating your visit to Montagu.
