Namaqualand Flower Route

In Namaqualand, it is pretty much about the beauty of the roads here – which is factual, as much as it is about the environment married to the roads. Namaqualand is synonymous with the best scenic lush-green and colorful wildflowers mostly between July and September.

The Namaqualand Flower Route lies roughly 5 hours north of Cape Town. You can already see evidence of flowers even in Cape Town, and Postberg, a small section of the West Coast National Park close to Langebaan. They get the juices flowing, but the real flower show belongs to a series of drives that centre on the towns of Garies, Springbok, Kamieskroon and Port Nollothway.

However, it is better to head towards this road from the north and then slowly wend the way towards South. Following this route allows for a comfortable ride through the unpaved and narrow road in the region.
