Town Small Nieuwoudtville

ID: w136561 View large map

Located in South Africa :: Northern Cape (Great Karoo)  :: Nieuwoudtville
Category: Places :: Town Small


Between 1700-1740, clashes between Trekboers and indigenous people led Trekboers to move to the top of the Bokveld escarpment. The town came into being in the late 1800s. Nieuwoudtville is known for its biggest variety of indigenous bulbous plants in the world, and the 100m high Nieuwoudtville Falls on the Doring River. During the flower season, usually August and September, the town is very popular and accommodation in short supply. It is during this time that a visit to the Hantam Botanical Garden just outside town is well worth a visit as is all the surrounding farm roads.
