About "The Witch Of Hex River(Cape's Ultimate Wonder)"

Click on the symbol under photo for full view. The Witch of Hexriver mountain is in Hexriver Valley, 5 km. from Worcester (Capital of the Breederiver Valley) on the N1 route, 120 km. from Cape Town. This unique landscape with a face, breasts, legs and veil is surely one of South- Africa's biggest unknown attractions and definitely Cape Town's fairest mountain. Worcester is known for his galleries, Kleinplasie Museum, Botanical Garden, Fairy Glen game reserve and many more things to do and see.According to the legend was Eliza Meiring a South African legendary figure who lived in the 18th century and also known as The Witch of Hexriver. Among the Huguenots who settled at the Cape, there was one Pierre Savoye with his wife and daughter. with the flight from the French border to the Netherlands, their only son died. They came to the Cape with Eliza, their only daughter. Savoye quickly got ahead in life, selling his farm in Drakenstein and moving to another in Hexriver, called Buffelskraal(Today Clovelly). Because Eliza was exceptionally beautiful, of noble blood and, moreover, well educated, many young men competed for her hand. Of all, she choose a young man, Jean Durand. However, before she would give him her hand in marriage, he had to perform, like the knights of old, a valiant action to show that he really loved her, and that he was brave enough to marry a noble lady.Her wish was that he to pick her a red flower ( probably the Disa Grandiflora) growing in the upper reaches of the mountain on the farm. About this the man laughed and climbed the Matroosberg with his rifle.After a few hours of climbing, he found himself on the ridge and then lay down to look over the side. Beneath him he saw the red flower and, after a lot of effort, picked it, but then the rock on the ridge, which consisted of weathered sandstone, crumbled and he crashed to the valley below. A herdsman eventually found him. His death so affected Eliza that she lost her mind. Her family had to keep her confined to their home, but one night, filled with remorse she escaped and threw her off the same ridge..

About Aubrey Thomas

Aubrey Thomas Goodman

I am Aubrey Thomas Goodman, better known in The Western Cape as a wedding photographer. Never in my life/career was i so bound by nature as the moment that i have stand before The Witch of Hex River. Born and raised in Worcester i was always amazed by this wonder and very unhappy that this beautiful framework of nature is not a known attraction in South- Africa. Supply the needy children with school gear in this community and resettle the homeless to give back meaning to their lives is a commitment to fulfill my vision and calling to the purpose driven life.Benediction/ 2 Thes1/11. Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power. For your charity donation you will receive Her portrait with history.Thank you in advance,God Bless.
