Although we are aproaching the end of the 2012 flower season we still have areas left where tourists can view flowers, especially in the the Goegap Nature Reserve, in the cultural historic town of Steinkoph and along our Namakwa coastline. Other areas where you also still see flowers is in the Richtersveld along the N7 and in towns like Concordia and Okiep.
Our daily weather conditions have improved and we are experiencing warmer days but it still becomes cooler during the evenings.
We warmly invite you to come and spend the last part of the flower season in the Namakwa region.
