Hospitality straight from the heart awaits you at this whimsical Karoo-style garden that is both a place of healing and a refuge for rescued arid-zone plants.
Hilda has a personal vision and a quirky sense of humour which infuses her remote mountain home. All is totally in tune with the wild landscape.
Hilda and Francois are incredibly knowledgeable about unwritten local history as well as about the geology, fauna and flora of their area.
Ask Francois about local fossils and the African Grays and Cape parrots he breeds.
Tea/coffee and nibbles are on offer all day with traditional vetkoek (curried mince or golden syrup fillings) at lunch time.
Open from 08:00 to 17:00 Friday 20th Oct, Saturday 21st Oct and Sunday 22nd Oct. If you fancy a drive up to Skelmkloof on Monday 23rd Oct, Hilda would be very happy to show you around.
Plants are for sale and there is a gate fee donation.
