The Northern Cape is an undiscovered gem in South Africa. It is home to a number of small and interesting towns, such as Springbok, Pofadder and Kathu as well as being home to the most breathtaking display of wildflowers in the Southern Hemisphere. And while the Namaqualand daisies are certainly an attraction that everyone should see, there are dozens of other attractions which will surprise and delight visitors to this stunning area.
The flowers only bloom at a certain time
Going to see the Namaqualand daisies means that you will have to plan ahead of time in order to see them in all their glory. The flowers start blooming in late July and early August, so be sure that you travel there during this time, and not in September when most of the flowers are no longer on display.
It is important to note that the flowering dates will differ slightly according to the rains that occur, and whether there was a heavy or light rainfall during the months leading up to August. And if it is still raining in August when you want to view the flowers, it can be difficult to spend time outside exploring the region in the rain. You can look online for weather reports for the year to see what the rainfall has been like and plan your trip accordingly.
