Gannabos is part of the famous Rondekop/Naresie wildflower route, which is world renowned for the wildflower season. Situated 35km outside Nieuwoudtville, with its stunning waterfall, glacial pavement, bulb nursery and flower reserve; 50km from Loeriesfontein, well known for its Windmill Museum and 90km from Calvinia with its museum, historic Hantam House and the famous giant post box.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to circumstances, limits will be set on photographers and/or visitors to enter the forest at night. Please remember that as the quiver tree forest is situated on the farm itself, it still remains private property. A permit from the owner will be required should you be keen to experience the forest at night.
