Welcome to Willowmore Info

 

A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants and Businesses in Willowmore, South Africa

 

Willowmore is a small town located in the Sarah Baartman region of the Eastern Cape just off the N9 National road in the Karoo.  Officially established in 1874 Willowmore is known as the western gateway to the Baviaanskloof.

For many years, farming has been the main source of income for those living in the area and since the late 1900's it has been one of the largest mohair producing areas in the world.  Although small the town has a little buzz of activity which combined with the laid-back charm of the Karoo and the friendliness of the locals, provides a lovely atmosphere away from city life.

There are many historical buildings in town, some of which date back to the 19th century and include the Old Dutch Reformed Rectory, the Old Jail and the Town Hall which has an unusual clock tower.

Willowmore is the perfect little hide-away, with interesting walks and hikes.  For more information on Willowmore visit Eastern Cape Info.

Some of the things to do and see in Willowmore are as follows:

  • Baviaanskloof - take day trips into this great expanse of wilderness
  • Bakers Dam - a treat for bird watchers 
  • Aasvoëlberg "Vulture Mountain" - overlooking Willowmore offering panoramic views of the area as well as excellent hiking trails
  • Mountain biking
  • 4x4 trails
  • The Willow Limo - fun donkey cart ride through the town
  • ​Jewish Cemetery - by prior arrangement at the Tourism office
  • Wonderboom - two trees, the Ghwarrie tree (Eudea undulate) and a Shepherd's Tree grow side by side, unique in that the Shepherd's Tree has three stems coming up out of the ground, two of which have joined together, forming an "eye of a needle" and a third stem has grown through the eye
  • Golf course - has 9 grass greens
