Cape Town - Spring is here! And at this time of year the road trips you want to be taking definitely involve the Western Cape's West Coast and the Northern Cape's Namaqua.  

But those are just two across SA to consider - Check out these other eight, whether to see the flowers or the unique attractions across this gorgeous country. 

And following low seasonal rains, the next 10 days are expected to be the flower season sweet spot. Visitors can expect landscapes of extraordinary colour, SANParks' Merle Collins has confirmed  on Thursday 31 August.

"Despite lower than expected winter rainfall, another spectacular season is currently underway including a variety of flowers blooming, creating a robust spectrum of colour across the park and a picturesque backdrop along the western coastline," says Collins.

The West Coast National Park boasts an annual flower season during the months of August and September. Read more here: SA's West Coast flower season kicks in and it's beautiful!
