Clanwilliam Wild Flower Show

Yesterday Nicoletta visited the Clanwilliam Wild Flower Show in the Cederberg area- about 200 kilometres north of Cape Town which exhibits 400 flower species. The wild flowers of the Cederberg are some of the finest in the world and also the largest variety of wild flower species, many growing nowhere else in the world. This is due to the different topography, from the dry Karoo-like landscapes through to the wetter vlei areas of the Oliphants River and the Sandveld en route to Lamberts Bay.
Although the Wild Flower Show is over the best of the flowers has only just begun so a trip up the West Coast to see the flowers is still worthwhile!
