Description [ correction ]

Garies is a small agricultural centre about 110 km south of Springbok in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. In 1845, Garies was established on land donated to the Dutch Reformed Church by the owner of the farm Goedeverwagting. It was originally named after the farm, but later renamed Garies (a Khoisan word meaning 'couch-grass') by former Cape premier John X Merriman. Garies is best known for its spring flowers, when thousands of visitors flood the area.
