The best time to come and sea this natural wonder is from May to Sept as rains comes earlier, the flowers are the earlier, but most spectacular is beginning of August till Mid Sept, sometimes end of Sept and maybe beginning October.

Our 6 day tour to Namaqualand was the reason for and the highlight of our 3 week trip to South Africa. Ww had always wanted to see the famous Namaqualand daises, and we were fortunate in choosing a very good year for the flowers. The displays were breath taking: mile upon mile of glorious oranges, pinks, and blues. Wonderful displays... More

Just returned from a magnificent walking holiday with Ecoventures from Kamieskroon to Clanwilliam. What an eye opener! The flowers are breathtaking and the scenery is food for the soul! Definitely to be recommended if you need to relax and refresh!

I took the flower route from the Western Cape northerly direction through to the Namaqua National Park. Don't be in a hurry and make sure that you have pre-booked accommodation as accommodation are mostly fully booked during the flower season. You will see lots of flowers along the N7 route and do take some detours to be able to come... More

If you have'nt seen this, you missing out. There are not real words to describe this wonder. It's good if you can see the area without flowers and then suddenly this earthly wonder springing up after some good rain falls.....

The flowers were simply awesome this year. There are yellow, orange, blue, pink, white and purple flowers everywhere. Took awesome photos. There are still beautiful flowering shrubs to be seen when the sun shines. And also saw lots of small animals like tortoises. And down to the coast (between Lamberts bay and Cape town on our way back home) also... More

You can easily spend one week in the area during the flowers season if you want to appreciate the area ; don't miss Goegap reserve, Namaqua NP, Clanwilliam & West Coast NP

We travelled up from Hermanus past all the snow via Tulbagh to Citrusdal. Stayed in a lovely B & B and saw fields of granola and lovely flowers. The old road between Citrusdal and Clanwilliam is to be avoided in a normal car (4X4 can make it) but it is sad to miss out on such a lovely drive. Took... More

We were lucky to visit out of season, and had the whole place to ourselves. We had two nights of peace and a day of feeling part of the world again. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the accommodation was beautiful
