General Information on McGregor

McGregor, a charming, well-preserved mid 19th century village with its quaint, thatched cottages sits at the foot of the Riversonderend Mountains in the Western Cape province of South Africa.  You will find McGregor just two hours from Cape Town: Turn off the N1 at Worcester, take the R60 to Robertson and McGregor lies just 20km South of Robertson.

 

The village was established in 1861 and was originally called Lady Grey. It was renamed in 1905 in honour of Rev. Andrew McGregor, who had been the Dutch Reformed Church minister of the Robertson District for forty years. It has become somewhat of a magnet for alternative lifestyles. It is part of the broader wine route network of the Western Cape and is situated at one end of the popular Boesmanskloof Trail to the town of Greyton to the south.

The area offers many outdoor activities, arts and crafts, tranquillity and relaxation. Surrounded by mountain trails, fruit orchards, olive groves and vineyards, the village has maintained a rural peaceful ambience which is an inspiration to artists.

There are walking/hiking trails, mountain biking, 4x4 trails, bird watching in Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve, a pottery studio, art galleries, cob house building and enjoyable meals and chats at one of our coffee shops, restaurants or pubs. Or relax with a massage.

The most spectacular hiking trail is the Boesmanskloof trail from McGregor to Greyton.

Wine Valley Safari offers safe, reliable, convenient and extremely fun transport in an open-air safari vehicle, allowing you to fully breathe in and discover the Robertson Wine Valley in all its glory!​ ​Choose from self-guided hop-on hop-off routes to pre-packaged wine tasting tours. Let us be your personal chauffeur, while you relax and enjoy a memorable excursion in a socially-buzzed atmosphere.​
