7 Nights, West Coast, Flowers & Cederberg

from R 5,203 p/p sharing

This SELF-DRIVE package is valid for travel between 01 August - 30 September 2022.

Once a year, the this seemingly barren landscape, dotted with rocky outcrops transforms into a carpet of flowers that stretch as far as the eye can see...  
Dry and dusty desert for most of the year, come springtime, the area is completely transformed boasting more colour than seems possible for one place.  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.  Even if you’re not a flora-enthusiast, it’s difficult not to be impressed with such a sight.  Now is the time visit!
