Namaqua is in the grip of a terrible drought so the wildlife and flowers are lacking at the moment, but it is still a wonderful little park with very helpful staff, and the cottages are some of the best value we have come across. Stunning...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).

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
