We did a five day tour with Namaqua Tours ( Namakwa Toere). What an experience. The flowers were beautiful along the West Coast, in the Biedouw valley, on the way to Wupperthal, etc etc. Loved every minute of this trip. Will recommend this to everyone.

We visited it in August/September 2015 and were lucky since it was a great year for flowers - the amount and variety of flower everywhere surpassed all our expectations. Amazing trip - have to do it!
