A primary unusual destination
For the broad-minded personalities always in search for the unusual there is Soekershof Walkabout in Klaas Voogds West between Robertson and Ashton in South Africa’s Western Cape. ‘Weird but Passionate’ hosts; great stories; a wealth of plant life; the worlds’ largest hedge-maze; time-travel with Albert Einstein; a stone-age cinema; the New South African Handshake; Philosophers Garden and, of course, the highly acclaimed succulent gardens with more than 2400 different species from all over the world in the unprotected open air.
You can earn a memorable reward by fulfilling a quest in the Klaas Voogds Maze.
This Maze is not a Maze in the traditional perception that you have to get lost but is a reflection of life; walking from one story into another which are visualised by objects, as orientating points, towering above the hedges. However there are, as in life, also a few ‘stories’ you will have to look for. And . . . . . . . . you are invited to make your own stories.
A visit to Soekershof is hard to describe for it is a very personal experience as you can discover in the ‘In-depth info’ section of this website The own Soekershof nursery distinguishes itself from other (specialist) nurseries by providing visitors with sufficient customised cultivation information in line with local environmental conditions.
For the quick ones: a visit takes at least 1.5 to 2 hrs. Duration average visit: approx. 3 hrs.
Visitors are invited to bring their own picnic.
