Due to the ever-rising economy, bus trips into the country are becoming more costly. Our first stop will be the Karoo Desert National Botanical Garden in Worcester. Here we can meander along the paths, enjoying the flowers, and refreshments can be purchased at the restaurant (for your own account) or you can bring your own. There are lots of shady spots to rest.

Our next stop will be Robertson’s “Bird’s Paradise”. We will have lunch there (Quiche and Salad + Waffle with syrup and ice cream for dessert). All drinks are for your own account. After lunch, we will be given a tour of the bird sanctuary. Lunch and the tour are included in the price.
