Not your ordinary day outing either.
Soekershof is an interactive and whimsical exploration of mazes and gardens covering 10 hectares in Klaas Voogds West; 10 kilometres East of Robertson in the Western Cape, South Africa.
What we do?
We offer a place of peace, serenity, and potentially finding solutions to life's quandaries in one of the world's largest and most unusual mazes and comprehensive botanical gardens dedicated solely to the preservation, culture, and display of cacti and other succulent plants.
What you do?
After a warm welcome just before 11 AM during opening days you can try to uncover the mysteries of a cycling Dutchman and a womanising German in the Maze and earn a handcrafted memento. Or choose for an interactive discovery in the succulent gardens (>2500 different succulent plants) including South Africa’s oldest cactus.
In between or there after you can enjoy your picnic; have a stroll through the other gardens; discuss the different locally made Land Art objects; support local artists/craftspeople in buying exclusive gifts in our Visitors Centre; be challenged by the shortest hiking trail in South Africa; explore ‘Our Little Nursery’ with organically grown succulent plants and get proper customised advise about their cultivation. And there is more ………..
