Bottelary Hills Conservancy All Set for Garden Town 2023

The Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy (BHRC) in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom – the smallest and most diverse botanical kingdom in the world with 8600 plant species of which 5800 occur nowhere else, will be showcasing its natural beauty during Garden Town Stellenbosch.

Curated by Visit Stellenbosch, in collaboration with key tourism stakeholders, including the Stellenbosch Municipality and Stellenbosch Wine Routes, the initiative aims to nurture tourism and experiential economy for the holistic benefit of all our communities.

Garden Town will run from 27 October to 5 November with an elaborative programme to allow visitors to immerse themselves in horticultural wonders and floral artistry, embark on culinary journeys and invigorating hikes, engage with gardening specialists, and enjoy outdoor adventures.

Included in the line-up for the first time this year, is the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy with an array of nature experiences. Founded in 1992, the BHRC features 1500 hectares of critically endangered Renosterveld, a 130km mountain bike trail network, hiking trails and wine adventures on the 50 member farms located in and around the Bottelary Hills.
