For the past four years the best flowers were seen during late July & early August. Many people think that the ‘Namaqualand Flower’ is a Spring flower! However, the earlier the better!
We are going to take you to places where tour groups normally don’t go. Just think about places like the Worcester Karoo Park, Tulbagh (‘Paddagang’), Quiver Tree Forest, Matjiesfontein Padstal, Paternoster and Bird Island.
