The spring season in South Africa is a marvellous experience. Not only will you be able to witness the nature awakening, but you will be amazed how colourful the world can be around you! The explorations of the Cape Floral region will give you a lot of emotions with its miles and miles of the fluorescent orange, pink, purple, yellow and white. South Africans themselves wait for the blooming since it is a vivid sign of the spring's arrival. Moreover, with around 4 000 species, the region is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
