Farmhouses in Old Natal – Benvie – Karkloof

Benvie has to have one of the most beautiful gardens of any farm in KZN. The old house is surrounded with hundreds soaring old trees, most of which are were planted by the Geekie family, over 130 years ago.

The gardens are open in September and October each year, (see Benvie open Gardens) to coincide with the spring flowering of Rhododendrons, Clivias, and Azaleas.

This farm will feature in Jacqueline Kalley’s upcoming book, “Farmhouses in Old Natal”. See previous post for more information and pre-sale order form
