Spring, sunrays and smorgasbords ...

Bartholomeus Klip




Dear {name}, if staying at BK were a movie (after all, an episode of Netflix’s The Crown was recorded here, remember ...?) the seasons would provide the script. BK moves to the rhythm of the seasons. Winter, summer, autumn and spring ...each and every season creates a unique experience of the farm and the nature reserve. Time now for cold and grey Winter to slowly let go of its wet grip and - grumpily - make room for the tentative but eager sunrays and spotless blue skies of Spring. Drum roll please ... Spring has arrived! 

In this newsletter Spring is here, and with it the annual smorgasbord of bright spring flowers. View seasonal farm and reserve events in our new seasons calendar. And start your week on a high with our Slow-Down Sunday special.



[ SPRING FLOWERS ] Every year from early August to late September the Elandsberg Nature Reserve turns into a tapestry of lush, colourful fynbos and flowers. [ Book your stay now ] to experience and learn about this world-renowned natural spectacle during a guided nature drive in an open Landrover with an experienced ranger.


[ SLOW-DOWN SUNDAY ] - Imagine, starting your week on a high. Check in early on Sunday, and while away the weekend with a book at the pool, an easy stroll on the farm, sundowners in the reserve and a sumptuous dinner. Start your Monday with a slow breakfast. And there you go … ready to take on the week with reinvigorated energy. We’ll throw in a special rate at R 1,999 per person, including high tea, dinner, breakfast, accommodation and a sunset nature drive in the reserve. Look … it’s just an idea, we think you deserve this … [ Book now ]


[ SEASONS CALENDAR ] The farm and nature reserve at BK respond to the natural tunes of annually recurring seasons, setting the stage for annually recurring events. BK is never the same, always a little different, throughout the year. Lambs frolic in the farmlands in April and May, which is also our wheat planting season, while harvest season runs from October to November. The shearing of our lambs is quite the spectacle, from July to October and again in February. Our world-renowned flower season is in August and September. We've listed our seasons in a calendar, view it [ here ]
