PRLog (Press Release) - Jun. 19, 2009 - CAPE TOWN - Namaqualand flower tours focus on spring, as the flower calendar of namakwaland is based on the occurence of winter rainfall on this western, arid side of South Africa.

The Cape flowers phenomenon of the Namaqualand area (kontrei) is regarded as a natural wonder. The brightly coloured flowers are sweet scented and massive in numbers to maximise their attraction to pollinators such as wasps, bees and birds by day and moths by night.

The flowers are dependent of early winter rains and enough follow up rains. Then a spectacular variety of sight, colour, shape and size will meet the eye.

This popular namaqualand flower tour will take you to some of the best Namaqualand flower spots. The following extract gives an idea of the extent of the tour - a full itinerary can be seen on the Kontrei.co.za site at http://www.kontrei.co.za/tours-namaqualand-flower-spectac...
