Hi all,


 

(We are getting a lot of queries what the flowers look like, I’m sending some pics to make explaining to visitors easier. The pics were taken the last 7 days)

 

The Skilpad section of Namaqua National Park has had 18mm of rain during August 2010. This is well below what would be required for flower ‘carpets’. There is however a surprising variety, and we would recommend visitors walk the trails or get out of their cars.

 

Flowers you can see in some numbers include the Varkiesknol (Conicosia elongata); Orange daisies (Ursinia sp); Meidestert (Lapeirousia silenoides); Gazania sp; and gansogies (Cotula sp). 

 

The coastal section is starting to go down a bit, but is definitely still worthwhile for visitors in 4×4’s. The variety is quite impressive.

 

Kind regards
