Nkonkobe Municipality

To efficiently implement social and economic development and create a safe and healthy environment for communities in a sustainable and participatory manner.

The municipality’s economy is reliant on the civil service for employment. In the agricultural sector, forestry and citrus production are the main agricultural activities. There is also a tourist sector, which is being targeted as a major growth area.

The municipality has many attractions for tourists. Not only are the natural surroundings impressive but there are also a number of historical sites worth noting. There is the Martello tower, today a national monument, with a mounted cannon on it, which served as a British defensive outpost during their occupation.

The landscape is also particularly notable, with beautiful forests, valleys, waterfalls and the Katberg and Amatola Mountain ranges. These attractions are popular for hiking, mountain biking and horse riding.
