Kogmans (or Cogmans) Kloof is a poort (gorge) through the Langeberg between Ashton and Montagu on the R62 to Oudtshoorn. It is named after the Cogmans, a Khoi chiefdom that existed in the area around the beginning of the 18th century. The pass was constructed by Thomas Bain from 1873 - 1877 and follows the course of the Kingna River, which flows southwest of Montagu.
