The Estate gardens have been designed and masterfully landscaped by Keith Kirsten, celebrity horticulturalist and multi gold-medal finalist at the Chelsea Flower Show. Keith’s expansive knowledge of African flora has enabled him to create an uncompromisingly spectacular display that blooms 365 days a year – a fitting backdrop to the Estate’s art, architecture and ambience. Over 300 new and mainly indigenous plants, shrubs and trees have been planted, including milkwoods, yellowwoods and sneezewoods, while scented hedges of camellia and swathes of coffee jasmine provide privacy for the luxury lodges. Water features, Cape Dutch-inspired rills and reflective pools add a sense of peace and tranquility to the dramatic mountain setting and provide an opportunity to display specially commissioned sculptures.
