When I had to decide when to do this trip, there was really only one possible time – during flower season. I planned the trip for 14 nights, and as I researched the various destinations I realised it would not be enough time. But I only had the two weeks, and had to make it work. I heard reports of the amazing flowers a few weeks before I left, and hoped the flowers would still be in bloom by the time I got there. They were.

My first stop was Mokala National Park outside Kimberley. A small but fabulous Park. Read HERE.

Augrabies National Park – one of the most hauntingly beautiful places I have ever been to. Read HERE about this stunning Park.

Springbok to Velddrif was flower time. The photos don’t do the flowers justice. But you can see them HERE.

West Coast National Park delivered the best flowers of the entire trip. Read about this unforgettable day HERE.

I didn’t have enough time to fully enjoy Cape Town and Cape Point. But I tried to make the best of the time I had. Read HERE.

My visit to Agulhas National Park was also the first time I visited the most Southern Part of the African Continent. Read HERE how not even the wind could spoil this visit

This was my third visit to Karoo National Park and the first time I would spend two nights. I was very excited to spend more time in the Park with some of the most incredible scenery. Read more HERE.
