Visitor's Guide Flower Route

Visitor’s Guide Flower Route by Marion Whitehead (MapStudio)

VG-Flower-Route-FrontCoverWelcome to the greatest wild flower show on earth! This informative travel guide explores the coast north of Cape Town when 3,500 species burst into bloom in the veld during the sexiest part of their reproduction cycle.

The guide combines visual inspiration with practical advice on where to see the best wild spring flowers, starting with early bloomers in late July to September’s spectacular landscapes and October’s lesser-known gems.

There are also great maps and trip planning tips, as well as identification pix of selected flowers, photo tips, regional overviews, places of interest, accommodation and farm stall recommendations, flower etiquette, plant info  and scenic back roads.

This guide is a great travel memento, whether you are a happy-snapper type of tourist or a more serious flower lover with botanical leanings. Visiting the flowers will lighten the heart, lift the spirit and pique the curiosity.
