    Entry Fees

Day 1: Cape Town - Vredendal

Join us on a visit to the West Coast National Park which, during spring, is embroidered with a tapestry of multi-hued flowers. Visit the Postberg section where many antelope are to be seen in a setting that is as unique as it is idyllic. Just inland from the secluded harbour of Saldanha Bay one finds the azure waters of the Langebaan Lagoon, focal point of the West Coast National Park. Thousands of seabirds roost on sheltered islands, pristine golden beaches stretch endlessly into the early morning mist and brooding salt marshes are home to vast concentrations of migrant waders from the northern hemisphere. During the course of the afternoon the journey continues via Piketberg to Vredendal. [Dinner] Overnight in Vredendal. 

Day 2: Vredendal - Nieuwoudtville - Vredendal

After breakfast you have a full day to explore and view wild flowers in their natural surroundings. Travel via the Van Rhyn's pass to Nieuwoudtville, the bulb capital of the world. It's widely accepted that the highest speciation of bulbs are found in this area. The bulbs generally start flowering after the first rains during March/April. The incidence increases to peak during July through to October, depending on weather conditions. [Breakfast & Dinner] Return to Vredendal for overnight. 

Day 3: Vredendal

After breakfast you’ll have another opportunity to further experience the unique beauty of the area, viewing wild flowers, endemic succulents and birdlife in the Vredendal area. Enjoy a wine tasting at one of the well-known wine cellars along the Olifantsriver Wine Route. [Breakfast & Dinner] Overnight in Vredendal.

Day 4: Vredendal - Cape Town

This morning you depart Vredendal and travel to Clanwilliam and the Ramskop Wild Flower Garden. Each year during August and September, depending on the preceding winter's rainfall, the area is transformed into a floral showcase. The area features a large variety of wild flowers. Ramskop Nature Reserve at the Clanwilliam Dam Resort boasts 250 indigenous species of wild flowers. In the afternoon the tour continues through Citrusdal to Cape Town where it ends on arrival.
