We took our grandchildren to Namibia last March.  We spent a week  
around Windhoek and saw lots of animals on a game farm, and enough  
flowers to be interesting for me. We avoided malarial areas as we did  
not want to give anti-malarial medication to the children.

  It had rained a lot, and there was lush grass all around.  In these  
conditions, the animals disperse because there is food and water  

There weren't any bulbs flowering.  Instead, Aptosimum, Peliostomum,  
Sesamum, Asclepias,  some brightly coloured Astragalus-like plants,  

The place to get up-to-date information is on one of the internet  
forums.  The one I used is…
A current query there is on where to see meerkats, and there are nine  
responses already.
