Happy Spring! Where to find Canola Fields in Western Cape.

Since Spring has sprung, so has the flowers all over the Western Cape! Here is where you can find the best yellow canola fields in Cape Town.

Canola are small yellow flowers, making a beautiful large scene of vibrant landscapes. During August to September, the farmlands become a patchwork of these beautiful flowers. Definitely insta-worthy!

Along The N2 Highway

Some of the best Canola fields can be found all along the N2 Highway between Bot River/Hermanus and Mosel Bay near the Garden Route. This includes towns along the N2 like Riversondereende, Caledon, Onrus, Botriver, Swellendam and Riversdale.

As you drive along the N2 you will see these picturesque fields on the side of the road and you will be able to choose the best ones that capture your fancy. Please be aware that the Canola is grow on private farms and that you may be trespassing while wondering through the fields looking for those great photos.

Rather check with the farmer before rampaging through their fields and damaging their crops.


Outside of Cape Town, a small town called Tulbagh, a road to Tulbagh and Citrusdal is often framed by beautiful yellow in South Africa’s spring months. So, head down the N7 or R44 and keep your eyes out for that instagram worthy field.

Namaqualand Wild Flowers

Another Canola experience can be found along the West Coast of South Africa and the world famous Namaqualand & Cape Wild Flowers.

Durbanville Wine Route

On the Wine Route towards Blouberg, from Durbanville to Philadelphia, the flowers are blossoming from one end to the other! Enjoy the magical colours and bright scenes.
