Geography and History

Humansdorp is situated in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa and has grown from a small service centre for the flourishing farming area in 1849, to a busy town with every kind of business. Humansdorp is the entrance town to the Kromme River estuary and the resorts of St Francis Bay and Cape St Francis. It is the first economic centre on the route between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

Humansdorp lies at the foot of the Kouga Mountains and it is here that the well known Garden Route starts. It is 87 km West of Port Elizabeth, 3 km off the N2 highway, 16 km from Jeffreys Bay, 20 km from St Francis Bay and 26 km from Cape St Francis.

 

Activities

Humansdorp has the facilities of a city, but it maintains the small town charm. There are hiking trails and forest walks in the vicinity, including the Boskloof Trail, boasting 46 bird species, indigenous trees, Fynbos and small antelope and monkeys.  

A collection of farming implements and household items grace the charming Humansdorp Museum.

At the top of Main Street sits the impressive Cultural Centre, a fully eco-sustainable building, which guards over the town. Traditional Khoisan art is exhibited there.

The Zwartenbosch Country & Golf Club is in the process of being developed as an 18 hole golf course.

 

Accommodation

There are many accommodation establishments available in Humansdorp ranging from Hotels, Guesthouses, B&B's and Self catering.
