Flowers at SAS Saldanha

Another good spot to view wildflowers on the West Coast is SAS Saldanha. Although the hiking trail is on the grounds of the Military Academy, members of the public are allowed in if there are no activity on the shooting range. A red flag at the gate will indicate to you if there are activity on the shooting range. You can also see some historic buildings on the terrain.

We visited the reserve on 15 Aug 2010 and saw some beautiful flowers there.

There are 4 hiking and mountain biking trails which range from 4km to 14km. The roads are rather flat, thus it is an easy walk.Here are some of the photographs taken on the day.
