Bernard van Lente, Namaqua National Park manager, reports that the park experienced some warm days recently and that the Skilpad area suddenly came to life.  “It is currently looking good for the remainder of the season, particularly if we get more rain. Lower-lying areas of the park, in particular Soebatsfontein, Kookfontein and the Wildeperdehoek areas, are looking magnificent – the best this area has been for many a year! Vygies and beetle daisies are especially noticeable among the multitude of species flowering all at once.  The coastal area in the park (Groen River to Spoeg River), is looking better and better. Visitors are guaranteed a good view of flowers, particularly vygies, in this area. Please note that four-wheel-drive vehicles are necessary for visiting the coastal section of Namaqua National Park !” Van Lente added that, at this stage, the Caracal Eco-route in Namaqua National Park is definitely the one to choose  when visiting the park.
