"And to South Africa, as its spectacular wildflower floral display is once again in full bloom in the Cape’s West Coast. After recent rainfall, this year’s flower season promises to be one of the best ever, with little town’s like Clanwilliam in the Cederberg, relying on the wildflower phenomenon." - Julie Scheier

Thank you Sue Bergh, Daleen Schoembee & Jan Oosthuizen

Rapport: Beleef

'n Besoek aan die rooiboswêreld van Clanwilliam in die Cederberge bied alles van blomme en geskiedenis tot rotskuns en handgemaakte vellies, skryf Julian Jansen

Leipoldt en San-kuns 
Leer meer oor Clanwilliam se geskiedenis op ’n historiese wandeling deur die middedorp. Stephnie Murray sal jou meer vertel oor al die historiese geboue, waaronder die digter, pediater, botanis en kok dr. C. Louis Leipoldt se huis en die ou NGK-gebou en waarom dit as die Blommekerk bekend staan.
By die Clanwilliam-museum, ook bekend as die Ou Tronk, sal die gids Herschil Pieterse jou deur die 13 vertrekke neem. Elkeen het ’n spesifieke tema met foto’s en artikels uit vervloë dae en dek onder meer Leipoldt as die dorp se bekendste seun, die geskiedenis van rooibos, die velskoen en roltabakbedryf,
asook die komediant en storieverteller Tolla van der Merwe.
Leer ook meer oor die vroeëre geskiedenis van die omgewing op die Sevilla Art Rock Trail by Traveller’s Rest (op die R364 in die Cederberge sowat 40 minute se ry van Clanwilliam). Die relatiewe maklike staproete al langs die Brandewynrivier deur die voormalige woonplek en jagveld van die Khoi-San neem jou verby nege rusplekke met rotskuns onder beskutte rotswande. Hier sal jy ook springbokke en elande teëkom – van die einste wild wat van die rotskuns geïnspireer het – en jy kan aan ’n elandburger smul.

Get in a Good Space in the Weskus
The Weskus is a ‘vibe’. It is a world apart, with a diversity of people and spaces like nowhere else on the planet. From the rocky outcrops of the Cederberg to the reef breaks in Lambert’s Bay, from Farmer Burger’s bungalows to seafood platters on a jetty, this is where you go to immerse yourself in all that is good. There is a warmth and hospitality that resonates throughout the region and the people will welcome you with open arms, always ready for a ‘lekker kuier’, armed with stories of years gone by. The Weskus is a place of rugged beauty and earthy charms, but there is also a burgeoning arts scene, a strong cultural movement and plenty of options for lovers of adventure and those looking for something a little more luxurious. You may think you have the Weskus covered, but it will always surprise you with something different. Find your space, find yourself. Get in a Good Space in the Weskus.

Dit is met groot onsteltenis dat ons verneem het dat die koperbord by C Louis Leipoldt se graf sonder toestemming verwyder is.
Dit is grafskending en skending van 'n monument/openbare eiendom.

Indien enige iemand hierdie bord te siene kry kontak asb Clanwilliam Toerisme
027 482 2024 |

Baie dankie aan Namakwa Toere wat hierdie onder ons aandag gebring het.
Ons is tans besig met onderhandeling oor hoe hierdie grafskending herstel kan word.

House of Rooibos

Rooibos Limited is saddened to share news about the passing of one of our directors. Gerrit du Plessis served as a director on the board of our company for 23 years. His passing is a huge loss to the Rooibos industry as a whole.

In this newsletter, we also share news about expanding our Quality Assurance Division. Recently, we appointed two new permanent employees in this department. Both of these team members have been working at Rooibos Limited since 2020.

The local Rooibos industry recently received certification from the European Union, which gives Rooibos regional protection. Premier Alan Winde visited Clanwilliam to preside over the handing over of this certification from the EU Ambassador to South Africa, to representatives of the Rooibos industry. Read more about his visit below.
