Wanting to take a day trip north from Cape Town to see some wild flowers on the West Coast? The famous wild flowers of Postberg in the West Coast National Park can be viewed in spring during the months of August and September. When the Cape Strandveld wildflowers are in full bloom, they are a breath-taking sight, decorating the fields with textured weaves of colour as far as the eye can see. Many annual events are planned around the wildflower spectacle, such as the Darling Wildflower Show, exhibiting the largest variety of South African indigenous flowers.
The wildflower season isn’t the only attraction of this tour, the stretch of coastline leading up from Cape Town towards the boundary with the Northern Cape is a beautiful expanse of rural scenery well-liked by birdwatchers for the abundant sea bird populations, including gannets and Cormorants.
The Cape West Coast is also peppered with quaint historic towns and rustic fishing villages, which offer fresh and delicious seafood, such as Snoek, Crayfish and mussels, to be enjoyed when we break for lunch while overlooking the unrestrained beaches and lagoons. Whales, dolphins and seal sightings provide much amusement and entertainment to the visitors and locals of the West Coast. The West Coast National Park is a must-see place for every eco-tourist, with rich fauna and flora, Cape fynbos and lots of natural history to discover.
When winding our way back towards Cape Town, we’ll tour through the beautiful Durbanville Wine Region to enjoy a wine tasting of premium quality South African Saunvignon Blanc wines, a favoured production for this wine region due to the cool sea breezes off the Atlantic Ocean.
