The Konkelberg Range

The Konkelberg Range


The name of this range comes from the early days of settlement in the Cape. The VOC (Veenigdde Oost-Indische Compagnie) prohibited farmers from trading with anyone other than the ‘Compagnie’, but this lead to big unhappiness. Therefore when the ‘vrijburgers’ and local tribesmen wanted to do business, had to go to a secluded area in the mountain-range to trade without interference. This corner was where Stellenbosch Mountains and Helderberg ‘joins’ and so it became known as ‘Konkelberg’
