Redelinhuys lies 190 km in a North Westerly direction from Cape Town and is better known as the heart of the potato producing kingdom of the Western Cape. Ask anyone in the know and you'll be told "Sandveld potatoes are best!".
The lifeblood running through Redelinghuys is the famous Verlorenvlei which is one of the largest wetlands on the Cape West Coast and home to more than 190 bird species. Verlorenvlei runs its course all the way down to Elands Bay which is situated 32 km from Redelinghuys.
An abundance of fynbos is evident along Verlorenvlei and during flower season (July to September) the entire area is ablaze with colour as the earth comes to life with a multitude of wild flowers.
Wildlife enthusiasts will delight in the reintegration of indigenous wildlife e.g. Springbok, Gemsbok and Oribi to the area. There are programs in place to ensure that this process is ongoing. Explore the archaeological digs on a day out hiking and see the fascinating rock art which is prevalent throughout the Sandveld.
One day is not enough to explore this fascinating place. There’s too much to see, too much to do and a definitive need to get back to nature.
