Flowers on the West Coast

5 August 2007
Today we went to Postberg in the West Coast National Park. This part of the park is close during the year and only opens during flowering season. It is open from 1 August and closes again at the end of September. If it is your first time you go there, take your picnic basket with. In the park you are not allowed to get out of your vehicle but on top of Postberg there is a picnic area on the Saldanha side of the hill. (S-33.1072 - E-18.0055). You can enjoy a picnic here between the flowers. There is also a small trail you can follow and photograph all the flowers from up close. Most of the flowers that you can see while driving around are seen on this hill at the picnic area.

Another tip, just before you enter the gate at Postberg, 200 m back to the left, is a curio shop where you can buy brochures and books on all the different flowers in the area.

If you ever wondered if you can see Table Mountain from Langebaan? Yes you can, see the photograph below:

The photographs below were all taken on the Postberg side of the park:
