About Postberg Flower Reserve

The Postberg Flower Reserve in Langebaan is not always available for you to visit. Even though it forms part of the West Coast National Park, this part of it is disturbed as little as possible so that, when spring comes, great swathes of flowers can erupt in virtually every nook and cranny of the reserve and reward everyone for their patience.

Did you know? This 27 500 hectare West Coast National Park is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the R27 coastal road, to the east. Famed for its bird life and spring flowers, particularly Postberg flower reserve (open only during the season), the reserve, together with its islands in Saldanha Bay, has been identified as an Important Bird Area. See more info here.

The route to Postberg is pretty easy to navigate. Simply head out of Cape Town along the R27 direction Langebaan. The entrance to the West Coast National Park will be fairly obvious, particularly as, during spring (August to October) there will more than likely be queues to get in. Going during the week is a better option at this time of year, if you can.

The added advantage to Postberg Nature Reserve's being closed for most of the year, is that there is game here that hasn't yet learnt to shy away. Zebra and wildebeest are common occurences and tortoises a permanent part of the landscape. Multi-hued flowers abound, and sightings of whales from Postberg make this time of year a real winner when it comes to placing a visit here on your itinerary.

There are picnic and braai facilities too, and the beach itself is a wonderful place to rest awhile as the wind is not quite as frenetic or active at this time of year.

But it is the floral extravaganza that wins hands down. Yes, you can drive all the way to Namaqualand, and, if you time it properly, you should not be disappointed, but with Postberg you are almost guaranteed of feasting on a sight for sore eyes, with little effort beyond the 40 minute or so drive from Cape Town.
