The Blue Butterfly

About This Center

In the tranquil Tulbagh Valley, just over an hour and a half from Cape Town, you will find The Blue Butterfly nestled in the heart of the Welbedacht Game and Nature Reserve.
Here, there are trails that meander through diverse and natural plant lands, a range of flowers for every season, an abundant variety of birdlife and both small and large game species that roam within the Reserve.
Surrounded by the majestic Winterhoek Mountains, this is a beautiful and natural setting for retreats, workshops and getaways.

Venue Highlights

The studio / workshop space: Making up most of the ground floor, this space has wooden floors, bathrooms, plenty of cushions, double doors opening onto a covered veranda and a big fire place with a stock of wood for the cooler nights.
The kitchen: Connected to the studio via the veranda is the large farm-style kitchen which is fully equipped and can seat up to 18 persons.
The gardens: There is a fire pit, gazebo and fishpond in the garden as well as many secluded and restful sitting spots. A gate at the far end of the gardens leads directly into the Reserve.
