4 day flower tour dates:
Thursday 6 August till Sunday 9 August 2020
4 Days / 3 Nights
Day 1 – Cape Town to Vanrynsdorp.
We depart Cape Town area and head North with the ever changing landscapes. We visit a hidden gem for olives and olive oil and wine tasting. We stop for lunch along the way. We visit Clanwilliam and the Ramskop Flower Garden. This will be one of the highlights of the day. We also visit the rooibos tea factory where you will learn how this local plant is grown and cultivated. Sample some rooibos tea and buy rooibos skin care products. We overnight in Vanrhynsdorp and use the same accommodation as our base for the next three nights. The town is very conveniently situated to go in either direction for flowers – either to the North, West or to the East. An ideal situation as it enables one to plan each day accordingly, especially if there is indifferent weather conditions in one area.
Day 2 – Vanrynsdorp to Nieuwoudville.
After an early breakfast we head on over the Knersvlakte up to Nieuwoudtville via the spectacular Vanrhyns Pass to Niewoudville, known as the bulb capital of the world where we will spend the day exploring this fascinating area visiting amongst other things the spectacular and unexpected Nieuwoudville waterfall and the amazing Quiver Tree Forest with over 8000 trees! A visit to the farm of Matjiesfontein will, without a doubt be another highlight. A visit to the local church hall to to enjoy some of the local pancakes is also a must(if your tour falls over a Saturday). We return to Vanrhynsdorp to the same B & B. A full and memorable day!
Day 3 – Vanrynsdorp to Skulpad, Namaqua National Park.
Depending how the flowers are up North in the Garies and Kammieskroon areas we will depart early after breakfast for another adventurous day! A visit to Skulpad in the Namaqua National Park will blow your mind with carpets of flowers as far as the eye can see. A real wall to wall experience which one finds difficult to explain to people! Seeing is believing!! A bit of travelling on this day but with the spectacular displays, will make it all worthwhile. We head back to Vanrhynsdorp to the same B&B to overnight.
Day 4 – Vanrynsdorp back to Cape Town, via the west coast.
We head back to Cape Town via West Coast towns and explore the beauty of this area, visiting Elandsbaai and Veldrif. We enjoy lunch along the way and stop for a walk along the beach. Another lovely day as the flowers will follow us all the way to Cape Town.
