Van Stadens Wild Flower Reserve reviews
I was pleasantly surprised in this absolute gem.....!!!! Nature at its best, if you enjoy the tranquility.... Just you and creation... Amazing!!!
What a great place to spend the morning! The wildflower reserve is a delight. I visited the reserve mid-September and the flowers were not yet in bloom, but the walk was still pleasant. There are 2 main walks to choose from, each about 4km long: the river walk and the forest walk. I opted for the forest walk. Stunning!
