Van Zijl Guesthouses


... are located in Namaqualand South in the North of the Cape area of the Western Cape in South Africa.

Situated in the town of Nieuwoudtville and run by local character Hendrik Van Zijl, who also owns the excellent Smidswinkel restaurant, this is actually a collection of various self-catering cottages in and around the village.

Being at high altitude, this area has a longer and more reliable flower season than on the plains to the west, usually July to October.

Van Zijl Guesthouses is a really decent option, made all the more attractive by the fact that the restaurant is within easy walking distance, so the self-catering really is optional.
