For at least nine months of every year Namaqualand is a dry and barren semi-desert area on the West Coast of Africa. However, between July and October the life-giving rains transform the ordinarily arid landscape into a thick and lush wildflower carpet of every colour. In terms of natural selection, the flowers of Namaqualand have been chosen for their ability to survive and multiply in a somewhat hostile environment. The climate is semi-arid to arid, the coast is sandy and there are rocky hills towards the escarpment. Breathtaking!The coastal areas of this region are cool, but the inland areas are very hot and dry in summer.
