Day trip from Ladismith to Hoeko Valley and Seweweekspoort

Hoeko Valley 2

Montage of the Hoeko Valley scenery

This day trip will take you through the fertile Hoeko Valley and the majestic towering mountains that form the Seweweekspoort cutting. Take your camera and you will not be disappointed. The round day trip is 90km to Seweweekspoort and a further 50km return if you go to the Gamkaskloof Dam. It would be a good idea to pack a good picnic basket so you can just ramble for the day.
