South-Africa’s West Coast boasts a spectacular flower route in August and September when wildflowers are in full bloom. Immerse yourself in flower wonderland where a mind-blowing rainbow carpet of flowers highlight this scenic route.

Namaqualand is a magical region that is home to this natural wonder every year. With its barren landscapes, mountain deserts, granite hills and abundance of succulents this region withholds strikingly beautiful qualities that are unique to this area. Explore the Cape Wild Flowers on this scenic road trip and experience how the psychedelic colors change in every field. The daisies, lilies, vygies and gladioli only open when the sun is out so plan your scenic drive accordingly.

Please note: Do some research before planning your West Coast Flower experience. The flower season varies every year, depending on the rainfall in the season.
