Namaqualand Wildflower Tours

The wildflowers bloom in abundance each year – join us for a chance to see this unpredictable spectacle. Plus, we’ll plan a custom safari and African adventure for you and your family. Namaqualand is typically in bloom between mid-August and mid-September. We’d love to put an itinerary together for you to experience the Namaqualand flowers.

Stretching for over 1000 kilometers along South Africa’s scenic West Coast, the Namaqualand is known for its stark, arid beauty. Once a year in early Spring, the Namaqualand landscape explodes into a kaleidoscope of color. The dusty plains are transformed into a blanket of thousands of flowering wildflowers. International and local visitors flock here to see this seasonal natural splendor. Aside from the endless photogenic landscapes, visitors can look forward to viewing a wide variety of wildlife and exploring the quaint seaside towns dotting the coast as well as the various historic towns scattered in the hinterland.
