The Flora Of South Africa With Joe Swift

JOIN THE BBC PRESENTER AND THE TELEGRAPH’S GARDENING EDITOR IN THE ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST ASTONISHING HORTICULTURAL REGIONS.
Joe Swift
One of Britain’s best known gardening broadcasters, Joe will join the tour for two full days, sharing his insights and behind-the-scenes tales from Gardeners’ World, as well as his abiding love of South Africa’s wonderful plant life.
Magnificent wildflowers
The visit is timed to coincide with one of the natural wonders of the world, the annual wildflower displays of Namaqualand. You will also make wildflower visits to the west coast national park, and Ramskop wildflower nature reserve, as well as visiting all the natural glory of the Cape Peninsula on an escorted tour.
Peerless gardens
Even in a region of uncommon horticultural beauty, these gardens stand out. You will have the opportunity to take private guided tours of four remarkable botanical gardens: Kirstenbosch, the Karoo Desert, Harold Porter & Hantam and Stellenberg Gardens, not to mention visits to the Kokerboom Nursery and Nieuwoudtville, known as the world’s bulb capital.
Unrivalled expertise
The Telegraph’s gardening editor Joanna Fortnam will join the group in Cape Town and you will spend three days in the company of botanist Sean Privett, one of South Africa’s leading ecotourism guides.
The beauty of South Africa
You will witness some of the breath-taking landscapes that make a visit to this part of the world so special, from a boat trip to see the southern right whale, a nature drive along the incredibly scenic Chapmans Peak Drive, a visit to Cape Agulhas, and walks in private nature reserves.
Luxury hotels
Accommodation and dining is of a very high calibre throughout. Particular highlights include a stay at Bushmans Kloof Wildernerss Reserve, and afternoon tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel.
