9 Photos of South Africa showing off

South Africa is known as one of the most beautiful, unique, and vibrant places on earth – and for good reason! Where else do you find more than 3000 species of flowers in bloom in one area each year? Or lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and African buffalos? Yes, the Big 5 in one country.

We could write about South Africa’s charms all day but only photos would do them justice. Here’s South Africa showing off in grand style:

Namaqualand is a semi-desert region located in northwest South Africa 🇿🇦, considered highly inhospitable for human beings due to the absence of water sources. Every year after the winter rainy season (which runs from May to August), just like a Fairy Godmother to her Cinderella, Mother Nature dresses the Namaqua National Park in a jaw-dropping kaleidoscopic frock of wildflowers🌷, reminiscent of an Impressionist painting. Check out 👉 our guide to South Africa and come discover the more than 3000 floral species of the park: http://bit.ly/SouthAfricaTravelGuides Photo 📸 by Cathy Withers-Clarke . . . . . #arrivalguides #lonelyplanet #southafrica #namaqualand #namaquanationalpark #capetown #africa #flowers #Nababeep #Springbok #Kamieskroon #Calvinia #tourism #photography #travelphotography #adventure #wanderlust #travelgram #explore #holiday #traveling #travelphoto #travelblog #traveladdict #tourism #mytravelgram #traveltheworld
