Darling is located in Swartland, north of Cape Town, where grapes and wheat grow in its fertile soil. Spring (August and September) is the best time to go, when thousands of wildflowers are in bloom, covering the hills with their vibrant colours. To get the most of this spectacle, be sure to visit one of the area's floral reserves.
