Coming through from Soebatsfontein, one sees the ravages of the recent drought. But we were lucky enough to see springbok, hare, klipspringer. Near Skilpad the flowers were out and that made it worthwhile. Roads need attention. Hosts a Skilpad farm stall were great in fixing...More

It's a nice, small parc to visit if you are on you're way to the north or south. Sleeping in one of the 4 cottages is a great experiance. Nice short hiking trails and great views (also with bad weather).

We camped here in the middle of winter and what a great experience. We camped at Delwerskamp near Groenrivier entrance. The campsite is next to the roaring oceans, the braai area enclosed for the wind and the eco-toilets a comfortable walk from the camp site....More

Well we do have a low range capability 4x4, but my husband is allergic to trail-bashing! This review is aimed at those considering visiting Namaqua out of flower season, and not necessarily wanting to do the Eco Trail. We visited the Park in February, and...More
