The South African spring begins in August and continues through to October. This season brings a riot of colours: white, yellow, orange, pink, red, and purple. The blooms are especially prominent along the west coast areas. Besides the well-known Namaqua National Park with its flaming orange daisies, there are plenty of other spots to relish spring wildflowers. Blooming areas cover Darling, West Coast National Park, Clanwilliam, Vanrhynsdorp in Western Cape, and continue onwards to Northern Cape towns such as Nieuwoudtville, Springbok, Garies, Kamieskroon and Port Nolloth.
