Sixth day of Lawson's custom tour of the Western Cape with birding guide Matt Prophet. We entered and exited the park at the Langebaan gate. We spent time at the Seeberg hide soon after entering the park and again late in the afternoon. We drove the heavily trafficked Postberg road, which was open for viewing of wildflowers (Strandveld). Sunny and mild, very windy by midday.
