Exceptional Gardens and Private Reserves
06 – 18 November 2014
Our tour was recommended by Robin Lane Fox in his article appearing in the Financial Times on 07 February. The gardens in the Western Cape are exceptional; created by enthusiastic, creative gardeners, their range of plants is impressive. The Mediterranean climate is an advantage as is the good acid soil. The mountainous landscape is a marvellous backdrop with an amazing range of fynbos (wild flowers) covering the slopes.
Having travelled to South Africa we cannot miss an opportunity to experience the hinterland of vast sweeping wild areas on a reserve dedicated to conserving wildlife. The Sanbona Reserve in the Little Karoo is an unforgettable experience. A comfortable lodge with delicious meals of local specialities, the game drives with an experienced guide give a wonderful opportunity to see wildlife in its natural surroundings of Karoo fynbos. Staying in the coastal nature conservation reserve, Grootbos, gives a chance on the coast to see Southern Right Whales and in the hills, fascinating flora and birds. Early summer in the southern hemisphere makes November quite appealing.
