The wildflowers and lakes of Chrissiesmeer

Overview

TThis area is known as the “lake district” of the country, and visitors come from near and far to see the wild flowers, and fish for bass and carp in the local pans and lakes. The town is named after the biggest lake, Lake Chrissie, and there are about 270 pans and lakes in the area. There’s also an annual frogging festival. Experience hospitality, beautiful guesthouses and guest farm with a vintage countryside atmosphere. Chrissiesmeer is best known for its incredible bird watching, and the Chrissie pans support 287 species of birds. In the late summer, thousands of lesser flamingos stop over here – during one year in particular, 18 000 flamingo chicks were counted on Blinkpan. The first waders arrive in September, so the best time of year for wetland birding is between September and March. The Chrissiesmeer area has a rich floral diversity. In the summer months from August to February, the Chrissiesmeer area produces a splendour of field flowers. For delegates who love nature, flowers and the great outdoors, make Chrissiesmeer your next destination.
