Along the west coast of the Western Cape province, and inland from it, is an area called Namaqualand. It is sparsely populated by incredibly friendly and generous people. The towns are far apart with not much in the line of scenery. However, every year around August - September the wild flowers of Namaqualand come alive and miles of nothingness turns into glorious fields of wild flowers.
