It really makes a difference!

During our kids' June and July winter break, we took them to the Garden Route, along the beautiful south-eastern coast of South Africa. To get there, we had to drive past the little town of Ashton where the bright orange flowers of the deep green aloes lined the road. It's also one of the stops on Route 62, which is fast earning the reputation as the world's longest wine route!

Redberry Farm in George

Redberry Farm has the largest permanent
hedge maze in the Southern Hemisphere!

After leaving Ashton, we turned off Route 62 and headed for Swellendam where we got onto the N2 and the Garden Route. We drove past bright yellow canola crops and lush green fields. We were headed to George and the Redberry Farm, the first adventure of our family holiday!

It's a great place to take the family. There's plenty to do from picking strawberries, to walking the maze and more. There's a farm stall for quick refreshments and a coffee shop. You can sit inside or outside and there's a playground to help keep the kids busy while you eat. I highly recommend stopping here to stretch your legs if you're driving past George.

Time For Refreshments

After completing the maze challenge, we got refreshments at the Red Shed Coffee and Berry Bar. The drinks and milkshakes are made with fresh strawberries from the farm.



Train Ride

Amanda rode the train. It took her through a small portion of the maze, around the strawberry field, and through a tunnel.

The Bubble Ball

After the train, she tried the Bubble Ball. We were her audience. Isn't the view at the water spectacular?

We had a blast at the Redberry Farm!
