• Nothing I had heard about the flower bloom could have prepared me for this. It was absolutely amazing to see! 2015 season seemed to have been an exceptional one as well. It was just magical to get to the coast and see it carpeted with flowers of all possible colours and shapes!

    On the coast, succulent types dominates while the mountains are the realm of daisies. A must see, really!
    This place has, with the Spitzkoppe, become one my favourite ever.

  • Late August seems to be the nesting season for white-breasted cormorants and those ones at the Cape fur seal colony of Boulderbaai were ferrying a lot of nesting material from the beach to this rock.

  • The Namaqua NP was recently created along the Atlantic coast of Northern Cape and his famous for it's flower bloom in August-September. Roads in the southern section of the park take you along the coast and beautiful scenery...
