When you come to Namaqualand, it is very important to note that even though the flowers bloom every year between August and September it doesn’t mean there are flowers everywhere. You will need to go and search for the flowers. When you have such a short window of time to see flowers during the day – and the possibility of having overcast or rainy days during your visit – it helps a lot to know exactly when the flowers are blooming and where they are. With the tours we do, it is important for us to know this, therefore we have people scouting for flowers during the season when we are busy with tourists. We are also very privileged to have friends throughout the region who call us when there are nice flowers on their farms. No two consecutive years are the same what the flowers and their abundance are concerned. They differ every year and you cannot plan on last year’s information.
