Remember most years Sep is too late.
Begining to middle August better.
Rains have been scarce this year so flowers would not be good.
Stay in Springbok and Niewoudtsville and do daytrips from there.
Nice circleroutes around both of them.

Thanks WDs. Unfortnately "leave schedual vs work commitments" do not allow for mid Aug visit.
