How it works


Perhaps nowhere else on the face of the earth is the season of spring welcomed by nature with such extravagant exuberance as it is in Namaqualand, a region in South Africa's Cape Province. Spring's universal affirmation of life is proclaimed here with unique intensity; fields are turned into floral seas of gold, purple, and white: valleys become like giant canvasses, splashed with mauve, pink,and magenta: harsh cliffs and rocky outcroppings are dressed in delicate green and blue. Landscapes that at other times of the year remind one of the arid, forbidding moonscape burst into such prodigious and unexpected bloom as to surpass even the highest flights of fantasy...
