According to SANParks, “Skilpad seems to be at its peak and will probably last for quite some time more. The cattails are also looking good.”
“The lower lying areas of the park, in particular Soebatsfontein, Kookfontein and the Wildeperdehoek area, are exceptional. White and orange daisies are covering large areas, and the Wildeperdehoek flats have large purple patches of Sporries. A multitude of species is flowering all at once, with vygies and beetle daisies being very noticeable.”
The normally arid Namaqualand comes alive with colour between August and October annually.
