Namaqualand is located on a stretch of a vibrant fishing region along the South African West Coast. Its springtime bloom of wild flowers transforms the semi-arid region into a spectacular pageant of flowers. It is a picturesque flower show that attracts nature lovers to picnics, hikes and camping in the wild. Close by is the Ritchersveld National Park, a World Heritage Site, Namaqua National Park and the Goegap Nature Reserve. Here, springboks, gemsboks, aardwolves, the endangered Hartman’s giraffe among other wild game roam the sandy plains freely. Birdwatchers also enjoy tracking and watching the over 92 recorded bird species including the indigenous black eagles and ground woodpeckers. Visitors have a wide range of convenient and comfortable accommodation options to choose from.
