places were visited and good birds & animals were seen. Even though it was Winter, 213 species

Outing: Babylonstoren Gardens, Simondium.

Take the N1 towards Paarl. Take Exit 47 (Klapmuts) offramp. Turn Right onto the R44 towards
Klapmuts and Stellenbosch. At the 2 nd traffic light turn LEFT (R45) Franschhoek (Simondium Road).
After 5.8km along this road, turn RIGHT to Babylonstoren. Driver’s will need to have their licences
scanned at farm entrance.
Drive along the concrete road to parking area. The main parking area will be seen on the left as you
drive along the concrete road. We plan to park in the overflow parking area which is on the right,
opposite the main parking area. Entrance fee is R20 per person. The garden only opens at 09h00, so
let’s meet in the parking area at 08h45, and then move on to reception. The walk is about 5km.
Wear good walking shoes. The gardens are Wonderful!! Food and drinks must be limited (small), as
they encourage visitor’s to buy coffee etc. in the gardens. Not to be missed!
