Darling, the Jewel of the West Coast, we will make a stop at Evita's Peron art centre and museum.
At Darling we will see the first flower fields. The rest of the afternoon we will spend in the West Coast and Postberg Flower Reserve. We will stay over at Langebaan and can have supper at The Froggy's Restaurant (very good food).
DAY 2: 9h00, after breakfast, we will drive to
the Fossil Museum at Langebaan Weg to look at the most interesting excavations on the West Coast. From there we will carry on to Paternoster, a quaint little fisher "dorpie" (village).

Helena on to Picketberg where we will get onto the N7 to drive further to Springbok. We will arrive in Springbok late afternoon, but stay here for two nights.
DAY 3: 9h00 Leaving after breakfast to
spend the whole day in "God's own Garden", the Namaqualand National Park in its full bloom of Namaqualand Daisies.
9h00 Leaving Springbok we will drive through the Goegap Nature Park to see all the succulents in flower (too early for this in August). Then we will reach Nieuwoudsville for the Splendour of bulbs in flower. After lunch we will travel further
through a part of the Cederberge. (If
visitors want to spend R2,500pp more on their trip, I would like to take them for one night to Bushman Kloof Nature Reserve
for a real 5star experience in a Lodge with Game drives, Bushman paintings and very interesting rock formations (full payment
for meals and Safarie included). Otherwise we will just visit the Seville Bushman paintings, go for a short hike here and take the Pakhuis Pass over to Clan William. We will stay in a good 3star Guest House for the last night.
DAY 5: 9h30 Today we visit the Rooibos factory, the Clan William Dam and drive via Citrusdal back to Somerset West.
My cost for two to three people, will be between R9,800
and R10,500 per person (four nights, five days). If they want to have the last night in Bushman Kloof lodge it will be
R2,800 more pp. This will include B&B, vehicle, Petrol and Tour Operator/Guide and entrance into West Coast Nat.
Park and Namaqualand Nat. Flower Park. It excludes other entrances, lunch and supper and all personal requirements. (For 4 to 5 people the cost will be less,
accordingly to numbers). I can also plan shorter tours if required.
