Geography and History

Ugie is a town in Joe Gqabi District Municipality in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.  Ugie is situated at the Southern foot of the Drakensberg, 21km South-West of Maclear. It developed from a mission station at Gatberg, established in 1863 by William Murray and named Ugie by him, after the Ugie River in Scotland, where he was born. The town was founded in 1885, and in 1916 a village management board was instituted.

 

Activities

Ugie and surrounds attract visitors because of the incredible natural scenery and the towering mountains that form a backdrop to the towns, winding rivers and huge dams that lure fishermen of every description, and the hills and dales that provide hours of hiking opportunities.

The Gary Kashula tractor museum is an interesting stop for visitors.

Cave trails in the Prentjiesberg (the Prentjiesberg dam lies just outside of Ugie) and Woodcliff, and skiing at nearby Tiffendell Ski resort.
