The incredibly pretty town of Nieuwoudtville, its streets lined with historical sandstone buildings, lies just inside the Northern Cape border between Vanrhynsdorp and Calvinia, just off the R27.
Nieuwoudtville is extremely popular during the wild flower season, and indeed, because of its unique placement in the Karoo plain known as the Bokkeveld, where the Hantam Karoo meets Cape Fynbos, it has a reputation as the bulb capital of the world. During spring bulbs, known as geophytes, of every description bloom in the area around town, rain dependent.
In town the gorgeous Neo-Gothic sandstone church forms the heart of the place. Its garden too is usually filled with flowering bulbs. Just outside of town you will find the Nieuwoudtville waterfall, decidedly underrated despite its being one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country. ery, where you can pick up your own bulbs to plant back at home.
