Namaqualand Travel Guide

You enter the Namaqualand wonderland approximately 5 hours drive north of Cape Town. The annual transformation of this semi-desert wilderness is a wonder of the world not to be missed. Evidence of the spring flowers begins even in Cape Town on your drive out, and progresses as you drive North... Read more

Kamieskroon Town of Namaqualand

Not in November - I am guessing this is a destination when the flowers are in bloom. we stayed one night in November and it was like a ghost town with nothing open, even the hotel was closed. probably a different experience in the season.

Springbok Town of Namaqualand

Stop Over - People are very friendly.

Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Love the cold - Has become crowded over weekends, in addition too many Pam Golding signs - inflate property prices beyond its real value.

Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Sutherland - The town is definitely in need of some attention. It is disturbing to see the decline of a town that has so much history about her. But in saying that, Sutherland is definitely a place to visit as this town has a lot to tell!! Do take the time to book a tour of the church (tour guide Jannie - fantastic person with so much knowledge, put aside 2 hours at least) as well as the birth house of WEG and NP Van Wyk Louw - (Reikie the tourguide took us back in time and one can easily spend 2 - 3 hours at the house - the amount of history of those two places were astounding! Do book a day or night tour at the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO/SALT) - fascinating and interesting and definitely worth a visit! Tourguide William was very knowledgeable and interesting! Do tip generously at the church and birth house of the Louw brothers, as they are in desperate need of funds to keep up the places! Stargazing at night with Jurg is also highly recommended!

Kamieskroon Town of Namaqualand

Small town with petrol station - Kamieskroon itself is only a small village not much to happen, but it is a good destination to get into the 2 National Parks. Especially in flower season. A beautiful experience.
