All very well, McGregor sounds like a lovely, exciting place, but where is it. Well, it's sort of the middle of nowhere, on a road that never quite happened. So saying, the best way to get here is by road!
If you're starting from Cape Town, take the N1 north as far as Worcester. Turn right, following the signs to Robertson (take the R60). When you reach Robertson, turn right again, following the sign to McGregor. After 15 minutes or so you'll be in the village. If you're coming from the Johannesburg direction, it's much the same except you take the N1 south, and turn left at Worcester...
If traveling under your own steam, the following chart of distances may be of help:
- Beauf W 441 km
- Robertson 21 km
- Caledon 105 km
- Swellendam 87 km
- Cape T 171 km
- Worcester 71 km
- Montagu 46 km
Should you be arriving by aeroplane, the nearest major airport is Cape Town International. All the major car rental companies are represented there, making it easy for you to arrange transport to McGregor. Once you're in the village, the best way to get around is by foot. If, however, you want to go a little further afield, there are several places where you can rent mountain bikes - and these provide one of the finest ways to see the surrounding countryside.
