If you admire nature or you just are the beauty lover, Namaqualand is a place you should visit for sure. See gerberas, lillas, proteas and many other flowers exploding with colorful carpets all around.

 

Extending from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the small town of Pofadder in the east, north from the great Orange River and south beyond Garies, Namaqualand is indeed a vast and varied region.

During the arid summer months it is difficult for the tourist to imagine the phenomenon of the yearly wild flower appearance.

After the winter rainfall, Namaqualand dons her coat of many colors and for a brief moment, the wildflowers invade the countryside. Countless poems, novels, paintings and prose have been dedicated to this annual shower of God's color.

It is a region of contrasts, with June to August the time when most of the annual rain falls.
You can expect occasional snow in winter with an average temp of 7degC. In summer 40+degC is not uncommon with an average of 32degC.

The best time to see the Namaqualand wildflower spectacle is during the months of August and September. The wildflowers depend on rain. It is recommended that you enquiry locally on the status of the flowers before you visit.

When to go in August? When to go in September? Now you know.
