Geography and History

Porterville is on the slopes of the Olifants River Mountains at the foot of Voorberg. It is situated 140 km North of Cape Town on the R44 road. Agriculture in the area is dominated by wheat production.

The region is famous for the rarest of flowers, the Disa Uniflora.  It is the only place in South Africa where one can see fields of these flowers in nature, the rarest being the sulphur yellow Disa, which has been found only in one small colony in Porterville.

Accommodation

Porterville has a variety of accommodation options available from Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfasts to Self-catering units.

Activities

Hiking trails, to places called De Hel and De Tronk, reveal dramatic rock formations and an abundance of flora and fauna. De Hel has one of the largest natural rock pools in South Africa. The Waterfall Trail is so named because of the constant waterfalls which flow down towards undulating wheat fields. 

Porterville attracts paragliding and hang gliding enthusiasts from all over the world when the active sky and powerful thermals provide ideal conditions for cross country flying.
