NEWSFLASH: Article from NEWS24 Traveller website on 22 April 2017

The Telegraph recently named South Africa’s spring flowers of Namaqualand as one of the 20 greatest destinations on Earth for flowers, alongside other spectacular sites like Italy’s Amalfi Coast – famous for its bright-coloured bougainvillaeas – and Holland and Belgium’s stunning tulip fields.


Flowers of Namaqualand

The flower season is fast approaching…and we have had some good rainfall up in Namaqualand and on the West Coast. Our contact up in Kammieskroon reports that the area is nice and green, but due to the cold, expects flowers to start appearing beginning to mid August instead of mid-July. Here is a recent rainfall map for June 2018:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


3-Day Tours – West Coast
The first few weeks of September, after the winter rains, is the flower season sweet spot further south, along the Cape’s west coast. The west coast seldom dissapoints, providing a large variety of flowers that creates a robust spectrum of colour across the park and a picturesque backdrop along the western coastline. This fully inclusive tour will be based at the Riviera Hotel in Port Owen for 2 nights. During this time we will take daily excursions to explore the various flower hotspots. these will include, but not limited to:

– West Coast Nature Reserve
– Postberg Nature Reserve
– Darling Flower Area
– Hopefield Flower Area

4-Day Tours – Namaqualand
Once again we offer our ever-popular 4-day flower tours to the real Flowers of Namaqualand – the Kamieskroon and Springbok areas far from the ’easier-to-reach’ areas nearer Cape Town. Here are the classic displays of worldwide fame. We base ourselves at the Kamieskroon Hotel in Kamieskroon, central to the most diverse and splendid flowering areas. From here we go on flower expeditions with our guide, accompanied on one full day by a local specialist guide. Landscape Tours also has the special privilege to visit private farms, off the popular tourist routes, where the flower displays are often spectacular. We tour the dramatic landscape with its huge rocks, succulents, and mineral wealth, opening our eyes to the fact that Namaqualand is not only a venue for the transient flower display, but a permanent amphitheatre of semi-desert grandeur.

6-Day Tours – Namaqualand and West Coast

These longer tours include the core Namaqualand areas of the Kamieskroon portion described above, and an additional 2 nights and days in the Nieuwoudtville and West Coast areas. This gives more opportunity for good flower displays and a wider range of flower species, plus extra delightful and varied scenery.
