We have talked about visiting this place for years, and at the end of every year we say ............. never got to McGregor this year, must do it next year. So it was that I decided enough is enough, the time has come to get into my car and visit this village that everone talks about so much. It is truely one of the jewels of South Africa. The village of McGregor has been described as "the best preserved and most complete example of mid-nineteenth century townscape in the Cape Province".
Its mild climate makes it one of the most delightful places to spend time during the southern hemisphere's "cold" months. Mainly dry, and generally balmy, McGregor's winters are charming. And in summer, the constant sunshine makes McGregor a great place to visit for a taste of African heat .
That's McGregor, with its traditional, whitewashed, thatched cottages, its quiet streets, mountains, birdlife, wine, charming and balmy winters, and hot, hot summers.
McGregor is also well known for being a holistic healing village. McGregor's important position as as one of the sacred sites of Southern Africa, with converging ley lines resulting in a high level of natural energy might be the reason why so many natural healers have moved here.

    Nice new page about a town where time has stood still -- though I do notice they have electricity and television antennas. I've never heard of a home for elderly donkeys before, but why not?
