Eastern Cape DestinationsStutterheim, Amatola

Lying nestled at the feet of the eastern slopes of the Kologha Mountains, the little town of Stutterheim is on the N6 to East London, is easy to reach, and is situated in one of the most naturally beautiful parts of the country. The area has a fair amount of annual rain, and as such, has a flourishing forestry industry that includes large plantations of pine, gum and wattle. Add to this the surrounding dams, hills and indigenous forests and it is easy to see why Stutterheim would appeal to hikers, bikers, birders and campers for whom escaping it all is important.

Originally established as a missionary station in 1837, Stutterheim today has achieved acclaim for its community building and development, and the Stutterheim Miracle - the successful reconciliation process of a small town - is internationally regarded. The Stutterheim Development Foundation, the organization behind the accomplishment, frequently presents the model as a case study to many parts of the world.

Other than the peace and quiet of the town, the incredible trout and bass fishing and the hikes and walks, you can also visit the Mgwali Village or call in at the Stutterheim Engine Museum, which houses a wide collection of steam engines from days gone by.

Reviews of Stutterheim

We love being outdoors and found that Stutterheim kept us busy. We did hikes, cycles and strolls through the forest. Everywhere we went, we were impressed...
