Directly translated as “Wheat Mountain”, Koringberg offers spectacular views and adventures. Go mountain biking to a secret destination in the Swartberg or visit the Autshomoa fountain.


A quaint town with its own mountain biking trail that ends at a secret destination

Beyond Morreesburg just off the N7 you’ll find Koringberg. Directly translated the name means “Wheat Mountain” – and with good reason. Like Morreesburg, Koringberg is known for wheat.

The Koringberg mountain biking trail follows a steep jeep track that rises from the Swartland planes. At the top you’re treated to a 360 degree view that includes Table Mountain, the Cederberg and Winterhoek mountains.

For a more leisurely approach you can stroll up a 5km trail that goes to the top of Koringberg with the same spectacular view.

Other activities include water sport at Misverstand Dam, fly-fishing on the Berg River and wine tasting on the Swartland Wine Route.

Also visit the Atshumao spring used by the Khoi San to water their livestock.
