Fair and peaceful daisies,
Smiling in the grass,
Who hath sung your praises?
Poets by you pass,
And I alone am left to celebrate your mass.
In the summer morning,
Through the fields ye shine,
Joyfully adorning
Earth with grace divine,
And pour, from sunny hearts, fresh gladness into mine

Daisies
by: Rose Terry Cooke (1827-1892)

Namakwa combines the unspoilt expanses of Namaqualand and Hantam Karoo to form a region of exquisite natural beauty and contrast
NAMAKWA IS TRULY A LAND OF CONTRASTS.. For the major part of each year this seemingly arid expanse of sunbaked, sandy plains and granite mountains hides a wondrous secret.
With the first rains in early winter, these dry lands are transformed into a kaleidoscope to brilliant colour in spring.
Daisies, mesembryanthemums, perennial herbs, aloes, lilies and a host od other species create a tapestry on indigenous spring flowers which are unparalleled anywhere.
About 4,000 species of plant grow here.
Namakwa’s flora belongs to a category dealing with tropical flora of the ancient world known as the Palaeotropical Kingdom, and should not be confused with the so-called Cape flora, which is one of the six Floral Kingdoms found worldwide
