Not your usual garden

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 ………..


Special day arrangements (only prepaid bookings)
1) With picnic (breadrolls ham/cheese, fruit, coffee/tea, bottle water) plus a glass of prime quality handcrafted wine (no added sulphates) of ‘origin Klaas Voogds’: R 200.00 pp
2) As above but with incentive: handcrafted laminated wooden seedbox with embedded cotyledon with packages of freshly harvested seeds of rare succulent plants: R 450.00 pp

Ideal for:
Family outings, group outings, horticultural/botanical educationals, garden clubs, photo & film shooting, school outings, teambuilding, night adventures, weddings, active functions, etc. Enquire about (customized) possibilities such as a package including a picnic with a glass of prime quality wine from the Klaas Voogds area.

The Breeding Place

Last week we did some (snap-)photo shooting in our garden (Soekershof, South Africa; also named The Green Cathedral of South Africa).

This garden is the breeding place of cacti in South Africa. In 1910 Marthinus Malherbe started to exchange seeds of South African succulent plants with those from the Americas and with that he introduced (except for the prickly pear) virtually all cactaceae in South Africa. The oldest cactus of South Africa is 99… Continue

Who is doing the marketing?

The best marketing tool is word-of-mouth; especially in South Africa with its verbal orientated interactive culture. For travellers from abroad Internet and travel guides are a source of knowledge.



Google 'Soekershof' and discover numerous articles and pictures written and taken by our guests. No own PR but a digital word of mouth and this feedback from all parts of the world is the best advertising one can wish. The same applies for… Continue

The festivity undoubtfully contributes to the promotion of the Robertson wines. For the minority of the visitors that want to discover quality: this blogpost. And the people who want to discover 'Quality… Continue
