Geography and History

Nieuwoudtville is a very pretty little town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa situated between Vanrhynsdorp and Calvinia, just off the R27. 

Between the years 1700-1740, clashes between trekboers and indigenous people led trekboers to move to the top of the Bokveld escarpment. The town came into being in the late 1800s. On the Bokveld escarpment, Nieuwoudtville is known for its unique vegetation, with the biggest variety of indigenous bulbous plants in the world, and the 100m high Nieuwoudtville Falls on the Doring River. 

The town’s streets are lined with historical sandstone buildings, one of which being the beautiful Neo-Gothic sandstone church which forms the heart of the town. This is a farming area, and the main products of this region are sheep, wheat and Rooibos tea.

Nieuwoudtville is very popular during the wild flower season when the town explodes into a kaleidescope of colour!  Nieuwoudtville has a reputation as the bulb capital of the world. .
