OUTING – Keurbos Farm and Bird Reserve, Elgin Leader: Mel Tripp
Nov 17 @ 6:30 am - 4:00 pm
Meet 06h30. Keurbos is Jessie Walton’s farm and nursery. It also has nice wetlands and recently she constructed a hide at one of the ponds. November is also when they have open gardens, so if people like plants as well as birds, it is an excellent time to visit, as the gardens are well worth exploring.
Directions: From Cape Town go over Sir Lowry’s Pass down over the Palmiet River and just past the Peregrine Farm stall you turn right onto Viljoenshoop Road. Continue for about 5 km, then turn left onto Highlands Road (the only turnoff to your left). Continue for 3 – 4 km, Keurbos is signposted on your right. We meet there at the garden/nursery which is farm number 65. The wetland hide is at farm number 71 where we will go later.
Bring refreshments for the day.
