and Stanford as Best Village Destination"
"Sixteen towns in one month! This was a rare opportunity to compare towns and discover what makes each one special", said Carl Momberg - CapeInfo. "It started on September 19 in Mokopane, Limpopo, and ended in Cape Town on October 18".
Mr Momberg said: "Montagu is a pretty town but it's those mountains that just takes one's breath away! They provide the adrenalin that those seeking action breaks look for.
Montagu's real strength is further that it's on Route 62 which, while well-known, doesn't have a clear brand proposition. Change that, and tourism to the area will change dramatically.
And Montagu does have the best tourism info office I've encountered anywhere!"
