A mere 50 minutes from Cape Town, just off the R27 West Coast Road, lies the small town of Mamre. Not only does this unassuming settlement have a rich and colourful history, it is also home to South Africa’s fifth oldest church in the remarkable Moravian Mission Station.
From one of South Africa’s oldest churches to the delight of wine tasting and delightful Cape cuisine, sample the best of everything on this heritage drive.
Mamre Garden Club Open Day
The Mamre Garden Club started by a group of enthusiastic gardeners from the Mamre community and they aim to get as many people from the community involved in this project.
In September last year they helped run a gardening competition in conjunction with the Mamre Wild Flower Show.
This year they have decided to have an Open Gardens Day in Mid October. Get more information on their Facebook Page.
