HEX RIVER -- One of South Africa's scenic treasures, a mere 90 minute drive from Cape Town. situated on the N1, the Hex River Valley is the main link between Cape Town and the hinterland. This valley has the longest harvest season in the world, which is from December through to the end of April, and are also the biggest producers of table grapes in South Africa. Our spectacular "Autumn splendour " from mid May to mid June is a must. The valley is turned into a patchwork of colours, snow-peaked mountain and deep blue skies, a photographer and painters paradise.
