National Park opens for cyclists and hikers to enjoy West Coast flower season
On Friday, the park also opened its gates for hikers and cyclists, says West Coast National Park manager Patricia Bopape.
The Postberg section of the West Coast National Park is open from August to September.
The wildflower bloom in this section of the park is a major drawcard every year.
Bopape says 70% vehicle capacity still applies to all visitors entering the park.
West Coast National Park is now also open for overnight accommodation.
