Indigenous garden tours: Wendy & Roger Colley’s garden

Postponed until 2019

Enjoy tea and cake and admire the view from this natural property next to Krantzkloof Nature Reserve, after short tours of the indigenous and herb planted areas near the house. Bushbuck, porcupine, genets, bush-babies have been seen here. The house draws very little water and electricity from municipal services due to water tanks and solar heating. A new bee hive will provide honey in the future. Architect Roger and Wendy’s improvements since buying here three years ago have made this their dream-come-true home. Accessible for people with mobility difficulties. More details closer to the time. Enquiries/bookings: tel: 031 2015111 / 071 8 693 693
