During August and September you’ll find displays of wild flowers across the West Coast region, with significant displays starting as far south as Darling. Excellent displays are also found in the West Coast National Park and the hazy coastal landscapes around Cape Columbine and Lambert’s Bay, while inland, Clanwilliam is the centre of some good routes. An incredible four thousand flower species are found in the region, most of them members of the daisy and mesembryanthemum groups. For up-to-date advice and guidance, contact the helpful tourist offices in Darling, Saldanha and Clanwilliam; look for further tips on flower-viewing.
