Saldanha – Elands Bay – Lamberts Bay – Bird Island Nature Reserve
Saldanha Bay is a natural harbor on the southwestern coast of South Africa, about 105 kilometers north-west of Cape Town. In the next morning we left Saldanha and traveled up the West Coast via Elands Bay and Lamberts Bay.
At Elands Bay, we made several stops to admire the amazing plants. On the ocean coast they grow directly from the white sand.
White hills on the left side of the road are composed of white coastal sand, it doesn't snow there.
Here we also made a stop.
Ferraria crispa is a species of the family Iridaceae, it is native to South Africa. Three photos below - all of Ferraria crispa.
A “still life” from nature:
We haven't found Pelargonium species there. Our trip continues.
From here we' ve traveled to Gifberg.
To be continued.
