4 day flower tour dates:
5, 6, 7, 8 September. 4 SPACES LEFT.
4 Days / 3 Nights
Day 1 – Cape Town to Vanrynsdorp.
We depart Cape Town area and head North with the ever changing landscpapes for Clanwilliam to visit the Ramskop Flower Garden. Depending upon the state of the flowers in the Biedouw Valley we will either go there or continue onto Klawer for a quick wine taste before visiting the world famous Kokkerboom Nursery in Vanrhynsdorp. 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 farms Matjiesfontein and Papkuilsfontein 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 the West Coast and the towns of Lamberts Bay, Elandsbaai and Veldrif. If time permits enjoy lunch in Partenoster, Langebaan or along the way, depending upon where the flowers are showing. Historically this day will also be ANOTHER highlight as the flowers will follow us all the way to Cape Town.
