A SENSE OF PLACE, A SENSE OF TIME.
Enjoy a beautiful meander through nature on our Heritage Walk, see magnificent Proteas up-close or be transported back in time with our VoiceMap Walking Tours
There is so much to explore at Spier and it’s best done on foot (or on a Segway). Dive into history, learn more about nature, spot interesting art pieces and find out more about our sustainability ethos on one of these interesting tours.
Heritage Walk: Free circular walk, 1.5 hours (or hop on/off at any point)
Our Heritage Walk combines a beautiful meander through nature with some interesting facts about Spier’s heritage. The walk takes you past some of the historic buildings (such as the 1822 Manor House and South Africa’s oldest dated wine cellar).
There are also some interesting facts about Spier’s natural and social heritage on the walk, and information on some of our related projects. One example is the wastewater treatment plant that combines nature, art and technology, creating a space of cleansing and healing for one of our most precious resources.
The walk is circular and runs through our Protea garden as well as the avenue of indigenous coral trees. For the more adventurous, there are two callout points that add about 1 hour onto the walk. The walk is approximately 1.5 hours but guests have the choice to end at any time. Comfortable shoes are recommended.
River Walk: Free walk, 30 minutes
Situated on the South bank of the Eerste River, the walk gives you an opportunity to observe close-up the large variety of Proteas growing on the farm. Well-known landscape architect Patrick Watson and horticulturalist Wilton Sikhosana helped establish this beautiful walk, which celebrates our magnificent national flower.
