Defender Trophy Eastern Cape

21 July - 26 July

Named after the three distant ridges of the Amathole range of mountains that resemble the back outlines of running wild pigs, the little town of Hogsback has become an arts and crafts colony, a photographer’s preferred location, a nature lover’s haunt and a honeymoon couple’s top choice of romantic hideaways in the Eastern Cape.

Driving up into the dreamy winter mists of the Amathole Mountains from Alice towards the Eastern Cape village of Hogsback, you find yourself in another realm.

There are numerous theories as to why many people seem to connect South African-born author JRR Tolkien’s fantasy world, Middle-earth (the setting of The Lord of the Rings and other works), with this little village deep in the Eastern Cape forests.

These mountains are the spiritual domain of the Xhosa people, who call this area Qabimbola (after the red clay from the area they adorn their faces with).

And when the mountain mists clear, you’re left with an astounding view of waterfalls, valleys and one of South Africa’s most prized forest strongholds.

Starting from Hogsback, and finishing in the quint village of Morgans Bay close to Kei Mouth, this will be a Defender adventure that you do not want to miss !!
