― Aditya Ajmera

ABOUT KORINGBERG
Koringberg is situated in the Swartland, in the Western Cape, South Africa.

Just 15 kilometres from Moorreesburg along the N7 to Piketberg, and an easy hour’s drive from Cape Town, and a half hour’s drive west of Riebeek Kasteel lies the unspoilt, peaceful little village of Koringberg, amidst wintergreen and summergold wheatfields.

Koringberg may be one of the lesser known villages in the Swartland, but the Koringberg mountain biking trail is slowly putting the town on the map. This day ride, to a secret destination that rises up from the normally flat Swartland Region, is a guided bike tour that purports to start with an easy and fast jeep track that prepares you for the hard climb ahead – worth it, no doubt, for the promise of glorious panoramic views. But the ride is enjoyable, taking one through fynbos, wheat fields and klipkoppies, and the descent promises to put hair on your chest with the sharp hairpin bends.

For those who would prefer to do it on foot, there is a 5 kilometre hiking trail to the top of Koringberg, where the vistas include Table Mountain on a good day, the Cederberg and Winterhoek Mountains in the distance. Other activities include water sports at Misverstand Dam, fly-fishing on the Berg River and the Swartland Wine Route.

ABOUT THE SWARTLAND
The Swartland is a region of Western Cape Province that begins some 50 kilometres north of Cape Town and consists of the area between the towns of Malmesbury in the south, Darling in the west, Piketberg in the north, and the Riebeek West and Riebeek Kasteel in the east. Jan van Riebeeck called this softly undulating country between the mountain ranges. After the rains, mainly in winter, the Renosterbos takes on a dark appearance when viewed from the distance in large numbers. This is due to the fine leaf-hairs adhering to the leaves when wet. The wide fertile plain is the bread basket of Cape Town with its wheat fields reaching up to the foot of the mountains, interrupted by wine, fruit, and vegetable farms.

On the Swartland Wine Route, wine farms may be visited and their products sampled.

The Swartland is also home to the oldest colonial hotel of South Africa, located in Riebeek Kasteel.
