Balgowan is a valley in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. The Midlands Meander, a scenic tourist route featuring arts and crafts, restaurants and accommodation, runs through Balgowan on the R103 road.
The town of Balgowan is not much more than an old trading store and a train station where locally grown timber is picked up.
The Midlands Meander is a treasure trove of arts, craft, shops, restaurants, and accommodation. You can visit a collection of weavers, potters, wood crafters, leather workers, artists, metalworkers, herb growers, cheese makers, and beerbrewers. It has well over 100 stops on four routes that extend over a distance of 80 kilometres between Pietermaritzburg and Mooi River.
