Springbok - South Africa is world-renowned for its beautiful and plentiful flowers. And what better way to experience this, than driving through Namaqualand in the Northern Cape.
From August to October, Namaqualand hosts one of nature’s most spectacular flower shows.
Enjoy driving through this 100 percent big sky country - that extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the small town of Pofadder in the east, north from the great Orange River and south beyond the small agricultural town of Garies.
As part of Avis’s South Africa’s Best Roads To Drive campaign, driving 500 kilometres from Cape Town to Flower Central, aka Kamieskroon, to the very heart of Namaqualand will be a breeze.
You will be treated to bursts of colour that come after the winter rains. The veld turns into a lush carpet of flowers that makes for unforgettable photographs, and features the richest bulb flora of any arid region in the world.
