VAN STADENS WILD FLOWER RESERVE

Van Stadens Wild Flower Reserve, is a 500 hectare "floral wonderland" reserve and is located 35km from Port Elizabeth, bisected by the N2 Port Elizabeth to Cape Town highway. The terrain comprises southern wooded slopes, a large plateau and northern river banks each with its own vegetation type.

The prime purpose of the Reserve is to protect and propagate the unique indigenous flora. Visitors are encouraged to explore and enjoy the extraordinary diversity and splendour of the natural Fynbos, succulents and other indigenous flora. Mountain bikers are welcome to explore the plateau section of the reserve.

There are a number of flat gravel roads, which are ideal for exploration on a mountain bike. The area provides ideal riding terrain for the novice mountain biker or the family on a cycling outing, during which time indigenous flora can be appreciated.

The Reserve is open daily from 08h00 till 17h00 and offers two walking trails and picnic sites.
