:: namaqua orange ::

The Dutch would be so happy – nothing but orange. Every flower season Namaqua National Park goes bright orange with a carpet of Namaqualand Daisies.  It isn’t a particularly large area of the park that is covered, but with lovely sloping lawns of hundreds of thousands of flowers and views across the sweeping hillsides it is really quite stunning.

You can’t really walk too far within the flowers, but even going a few meters into the fields is enough to truly feel overwhelmed by their sheer numbers.  With biking and hiking trails an option, this would be a lovely place to take a picnic and just soak in the pure flowery nirvana of this corner of Namaqualand.  We unfortunately had more travels ahead of us that day and so were content soaking up this sea of orange for a few hours before heading off to our next adventure.
