Come celebrate Spring in Magoebaskloof

The misty mountains of Magoebaskloof are an ideal long-weekend destination in Spring.

This environment is ideal for Japanese flowering cherries, maples, crabapples and azaleas. Superb specimens of these plants are found in Sequoia, Kuhestan and Cheerio gardens. All three gardens will be open to visitors toward the end of September and into October. Stroll through their gardens and lose yourself in colour and atmosphere.
Cheerio gardens will host a wedding Expo on 21-22 September for those looking for wedding inspiration.

Haenertsburg Village will kick off Spring with a beer festival in the Village hall on Friday the 20th September.

A craft fair continues through the long weekend (21-24 September). A variety of high-quality local art and craft will be on display, as well as eats, with something available for the whole family. Plants will also be on display and on sale: talk to some of the local experts, who are all passionate about what they grow. It ends off with a celebration of heritage day- braai, music and the works.

For accommodation, book early to get a spot in the quaint village of Haenertsburg, or explore some gems in the surrounding areas.

For those looking for some adrenaline, there are a variety of mountain bike trails (maps available from the Tin Roof shop), birding destinations (particularly in the indigenous forests), a trip to Canopy tours and the Spring Run at Blueberry heights (date to be confirmed).

Going indigenous, there are guided walks (21 September) through the endangered grassland, which is also beautiful at this time of the year. It led by members of the grassland (Frohg) group, who point out the amazing plants in the grassland. One can also explore one of many hikes in the region, or meet new friends on a  group hike with Sandi Moore’s Hike Tribe.

With many more things to do, one has the opportunity to do as much or as little in Magoebaskloof, to celebrate spring.
