DARLING

A small town gem uncovered!

Darling is known as the flower of the West Coast, and the abundance of flora and natural flowers is undoubtedly its biggest asset. Routes include the !Khwa ttu, Buffelsfontein Game & Nature Reserve & The Darling Wildfower Society.

Tienie Versfeld Wildflower Reserve lies just outside Darling en route to Yzerfontein. The incredibly beautiful 20 hectare reserve was once part of the farm Slangkop and was donated to the South African National Biodiversity Institute by the then owner Mr. Marthinus Versfeld. 

The graves of Oom Tienie and his wife Beatrice (known as Baby) can be found in the reserve. Interestingly Marthinus’s sister, Muriel, was one of the founding members of the Darling Wildflower Society.

!Khwa ttu’s MBT on the Cape West Coast offers variety, fun, relaxation and spectacular views, at a great family venue perfect for weekend getaways.The trail includes two well-marked routes suitable for all levels of experience, from casual leisure rider to experienced adrenaline junkie. We have mountain bikes for hire.
