Located on Route 62 in the Western Cape, the scenic Klein Karoo town of Montagu nestles in
the foothills of the Langeberg Mountain range. This picturesque town is renowned for the
healing properties of its hot springs, as well as its excellent rock climbing conditions and the
pastoral beauty of its wine farms and orchards.
Montagu Hot Springs
Montagu’s hot mineral springs are the town’s oldest and
biggest attraction, and are reputed to have curative and
restorative powers. For over a century, people have travelled
to the town to bathe in the naturally hot springs that well up
from the dry Karoo earth.
Today the Avalon Springs complex provides the perfect
destination for those looking to soak their stress and
