The Wild Flowers of the Cape & Namaqualand

Tour Code: ZAF10

A 14-day wildlife holiday to South Africa's Western and Northern Cape Provinces timed to coincide with the spectacular and colourful displays of spring flowers.

14 days from £3995(inc flights) Land Only Price: £2695 SRS: £295


This holiday is timed to coincide with the annual floral displays that carpet South Africa’s Western Cape and Namaqualand Provinces in the early spring. Starting in Cape Town we first explore the world-famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the unique ‘fynbos’ vegetation of the spectacular Cape Peninsula, and go in search of African Penguins and huge Southern Right Whales. Next we head north through the West Coast National Park, where mammals such as Eland and Bontebok graze in a floral ‘sea’ of reds, yellows and pinks. We then have five nights in the very heart of Namaqualand’s flower displays to enjoy the carpets of spring annuals and a rich bulb flora, before returning to Cape Town once more via a couple of days’ botanising around Clanwilliam. Although flora will be the primary focus of this tour, the region’s varied birdlife and other wildlife will also be enjoyed.
