Kuhestan Gardens*

Kuhestan Gardens cover an area of 1,5 ha and are considered one of the most beautiful gardens in Magoebaskloof. Open 09:00 – 12:00 daily

With the renowned Woodbush indigenous forest as a backdrop Kuhestan gardens have been in the making for  over 20 years.  The gardens come alive every spring with Azaleas, Banksias, Clivias, Crabapple & cherry blossoms and a host of other flowering shrubs and annuals.  Summer showcases varieties of hydrangeas, anemones & fuchsias.  Persimmon trees, Japanese & Chinese maples colour the gardens in autumn together with flowering shrubs such as Plectranthus, Centradenia (Spanish Shawl), Reinwardtia, etc.  Shahrzad’s dream was to have a very large garden to plant as her heart desired and create a beauty that sooths the eye.  Her prayers were answered in 2001 when Shahrzad and Brett bought their farm in Magoebaskloof and over 1.5 ha was dedicated to creating gardens.  They named it Kuhestan, which means Land of Mountains in Persian.  The gardens have many paths so the visitors can see all the beauty of trees, shrubs and the over 2000 annuals planted each year.
