Friday, 4 February – Monday, 7 February 2022
This year, the theme of the weekend is absolutely anything green and growing!
Verlorenkloof has a landscape rich in biodiversity and will offer you ample opportunities to experience many different trees, flowers, and orchids in their various habitats, which are a joy to visit in any season.
Friday 4 February
14:30 – onwards – Arrive at Verlorenkloof Estate and settle in at your Croft at your leisure.
Saturday 5 February
08:00 – 12:00 – Meet at the Lodge for a cup of coffee or tea and a short introductory talk by renowned botanist Frans Krige before you discover Verlorenkloof’s mysteries on a walk led by Frans. The walk will be slow and gradual and can be enjoyed by all ages. Remember to bring along a hat, sunscreen, and water. After the morning walk, you can enjoy lunch at your croft or at our Foodspace restaurant. An excellent option here is to pre-order one of our Foodspace Picnic Boxes, which will be ready and waiting for you at Reception. The picnic boxes are available at R365 for 2 people.
In the afternoon, Frans, our orchid specialist, will assess the weather and ascertain the interest in seeing the beautiful Gladiolus Cataractarum growing in the Robin’s Kloof cliffs, a treasure only flowering at this time of the year. A definite must-see!
