Nieuwoudtville Town of Namaqualand

Flowers - The flowers at Matjiesfontein (near Nieuwoudtville) are fantastic.

Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Out of the way places to visit - Quiet weekend retreat. Initially a bit of a culture shock, but a very pleasant surprise. Definitely worth a second visit.

Calvinia Town of Namaqualand

Calvinia - Delightful town - bit of a surprise as historical buildings have been mixed with the modern ones. The Akkerdam Nature Reserve is worth a visit, especially if you enjoy 4x4 or hiking. Calvinia is worth visiting for a long weekend.

Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Sutherland - Sutherland will be a shock to the system if you arrive from a major city. However, within a short time you will hopefully get into the Karoo pace of life. Explore the gravel streets and you likely to find something you won't typically find in Cape Town. Is that not what a holiday away from home is meant to be? An attraction is SALT, 15kms outside of Sutherland. We could only get onto the hourly tour (cheaper), but probably got more out of it than the proper tour. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, and went out of his way to personalise our experience.
