Area Information:

Vanrhynsdorp is in administrative terms part of the Western Cape Province, but geographically, Vanrhynsdorp is part of the Namaqualand Region and is the hub of the flower routes. Vanrhynsdorp is the start of the the vast, semi-desert Nama Karoo, with its typical vegetation of succulents and semi-arid climate.

For a short time every year (after good winter rains, around August to September) the countryside here erupts into a show of colour as spans of wildflowers bloom. Vanrhynsdorp is an ideal base from which the Namaqualand flower areas may be explored.

Property Facilities:

The activities on the farm include a swimming pool, mountain climbing, walking routes, bird life, bicycle routes, playground, and trampoline for kids and farm animals. During August and September, the farm is covered with beautiful flowers, 1500 species in total. There is a diversity of flowers, for example, the Nama-Karoo succulents, fynbos in the mountains and rare species of bulbs.

Attractions:

Attractions in the area include Gifberg tour, wine tour, Victorian buildings and Kokerboom nursery in Vanrhynsdorp. Day tours could also be done to Nieuwoudtville, Clanwilliam or Strandfontein.

Maskam Guest Farm is the ideal place to unwind and the tranquillity is unbelievable. The magnificent sunsets and galaxy of stars are appreciated by many guests.

Beautiful chalet we had with a stunning view. We had such a relaxed time and the wood supplied for the braai came so handy.

We were flower hunting and it was a perfect place to do that from. Even though the weather was against us, we still saw lovely flowers.

It has a nice new OK mini market for buying groceries and a butcher and bottle store all right at the entrance to the town and two petrol stations. There is a well renowned succulent nursery in town and a nice coffee shop.
It is situated on the knersvlakte with unique biodiversity and incredible succulents and flowers.
