Abundant bird life, fynbos and flowers are the attractions at this world-famous destination

Nestled between patches of blue gum trees and surrounded by rocky hills, Redelinghuys is known for its sweet-smelling wildflowers and the famous Verlorenvlei wetland.

With predominantly Victorian architecture the town – like many others in the region – is built around a church.

Redelinghuys is also known as the “potato capital of the Sandveld” with many potato farms producing high quality potatoes situated in the Verlorenvlei region. Rooibos – the main ingredient of Rooibos tea – grows wild here and is freely available.

Verlorenvlei stretches from Redelinghuys 30km north to Elands Bay where it flows into the Atlantic Ocean. It’s one of the most important estuarine systems in the Western Cape home to some 200 bird species: Little Bittern, Caspian Tern, Purple Heron, Malachite Kingfisher, African March Harrier, Grebes, Ducks and Flamingos.

Go birding, hiking and flower gazing.
