Namaquwa National Park

Namaquwa National Park (Namaqualand) is truly a land of contrasts. For the major part of each year this seemingly arid expanse of sunbaked, sandy plains and Granite Mountains hides a wondrous secret. With the first rain in early winter, this dry land is transformed into a kaleidoscope for brilliant colour in spring. Daisies, perennial herbs, aloes, lilies and a host of other species create a tapestry of indigenous spring flowers which are unparalleled anywhere. About 4 000 plants grow here.
