Namaqua National Park is probably best known for the famous flowers that the west coast boasts after good winter rains in the region. However, there is much more to this lovely Park than the floral carpets in winter. The Coastal camps, as they are known, consists of a number of camping sites between the Spoeg River mouth and the Groen... More

Booked in for one night, stayed for two. Cottages are a delight, well appointed and with a fab view. The recommended access route in involves 20+ km of quite rough dirt road, not a place for ordinary sedan vehicles. Overall, staff friendly and a lovely spot for few days, best enjoyed with a sturdy vehicle though. Must be stunning when... More

Year after year the Namaqua national park never fails to live up to it's reputation of being "the" place to see the spectacular flower show. Skilpad camp is about half an hour's drive on a gravel road off the R27from Kammieskroon then there are a number of camp sites situated along the beach which are only accessible by 4x4, some...

Our first visit to this park was well worth it. In spite being told we were late for the peak flower season we were amazed by the beautiful flower displays on a nice and sunny day in early September. A trail allows you to walk the area and enjoy the flowers. The park has longer high clearance vehicle roads but... More

I feel so guilty doing the day by myself in the park, it's impossible to explain to someone the extend of flowers following the landscape over above on top everywhere! Seeing the park in bloom is a privilege. And most certainly something to be shared. I did the full lengthy and scenic drive to Soebatsfontein. Enjoyed every moment and completely... More

We arived in Namaqua National Park right in the middle of September and hence when all the flowers were in bloom. It's so stunning in places that it is hard to find words to describe. Don't just expect amazing fields of flowers, there is so much more here. The caracal drive from Skilpad to the ocean part of the National... More

Namaqua in Spring is a must and deserves 5 stars however as a general rule year round this is still a 4 star Park - Late July through to late september the Park is carpeted in spring flowers. The sedan part of the park is not very long just a few km's however you will see Red Hartebeest and Springbok... More

Wow!!!! August 2015 saw this park burst into bloom... we visited it twice and were not disappointed. The daisies (and many other flowers!) were everywhere... you could spend a whole day there and marvel at the miracles of nature. Amazing!

View the multitude of succulents that grow there, even outside flower time. Offers a very scenic route to Hondeklip Bay.

This is really a wonder to see and it definately is something you have to experience. We visited the Namaqua park, Skilpad camp pretty late in the season (1st two weeks of September) but managed to catch the end of the flowers. We luckily got a nice sunny day and drove down to skilpad from Springbok. We were pleasantly surprised... More
