Geography and History
Willowmore, the gateway to the Baviaanskloof in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, is a worthwhile destination in its own right, offering the visitor numerous places of interest and exceptionally friendly people. Add to this a crime free, safe and secure environment, you have found the ideal Karoo holiday destination.
Willowmore, laid out on the farm Willow in 1862, is only 85 kilometres from Plettenberg Bay and 94 kilometres from Knysna, a great spot from which to explore the many attractions of the Karoo and Garden Route.
Aasvoëlberg - "Vulture Mountain", overlooking Willowmore, is one of the few places in the Karoo where coastal fynbos grows. The mountain offers panoramic views of the area and a wide variety of activities.
A number of trails offer hikers the chance to explore the flora, fauna and birdlife of the mountain. The rugged terrain provides even the most experienced mountain biker with exciting and challenging trails.
For the adrenalin junky, the mountain lends itself to spectacular paragliding and adventurous abseiling. There is also a 4x4 trail to the top of the mountain.
Willowmore offers a variety of accommodation options. There are also a number of guest farms in the area.
