Inclusions and Exclusions


The best place to see the acres of colourful springtime blooms is in and around the Namaqualand region on the northwest coast of the country. The wildflowers are nothing short of amazing. During the rest of the year, the landscape is mostly a dry and dusty desert. However, come springtime and the area is completely transformed with flowering life boasting more colour than seems possible for one place. Prepare to be blown away by the brightly-painted landscape rolling across acres of barren land. Even if you’re not a flora-enthusiast, it’s difficult not to be impressed with such a sight.
