If you can cope with horribly corrugated roads don't miss the park in flower season. It is breathtakingly beautiful at Skilpad, the endless vistas of flowers has to be seen to be believed.

Being my first visit to the flowers in Namaqualand, I was not disappointed in any way. It is an unbelievable sight to see so many different types of flowers all close together. I have posted just a small selection of the photographs I took, to...More
