Hi Pamelajana,

I phoned Tankwa yesterday, and the friendly lady said the flowers are blooming already. They have had regular rain since April... she expects them to be at their best soon.
Thinking of going there this weekend myself...
Hope you find what youa re looking for.
God bless,

Hi Pamelajane

A reply from Tarcia Hendricks, Public Relations Officer: Cape Region*, South African National Parks :

The Tankwa-Karoo NP Park Manager informed me that the flowers are already blooming in the park but are not at its peak or fullest yet.

Please see attached photos.
