WELCOME TO NATURE’S TREASURE CHEST
Namaqua Coastal Route
The Namaqua Coastal Route meanders through the vastness of the great Namaqualand and its loosely defined boundaries run through Springbok, Okiep, Nababeep, Kleinzee, Koiingnaas, Hondeklip Bay, Garies, Kamieskroon and back to Springbok. The Route was founded in March 2016 and has grown from strength to strength since.
The Namaqua Coastal Route showcases all that there is to see and do within this region. Our members are committed to a code of conduct which promises to offer the best possible service to visitors, as well as to promote and support rural tourism development within the region. Moreover, we are committed to the conservation of our natural, cultural and historical heritage and we strive to promote this ethic in all our tourism promotion and development.
Springtime attracts hordes of visitors, both local and international as people flock to Namaqualand to experience the spectacular fields of wildflowers that bloom throughout the area at this time of the year. The dry, dusty plains are transformed – almost overnight – into a kaleidoscope of color, with millions of flowers coming alive to salute the sun.
However, don’t be fooled into thinking that spring is the only time that Namaqualand is worth a visit. When Namaqualand sheds her extravagant, spring coat and returns to rest and prepare for the next show, her real beauty is revealed. Magnificent mountains, crystal clear night skies ideal for stargazing, colorful lizards basting on ancient rocks – her real beauty that gets overshadowed by the crazy colors of spring – returns, in its own modest tranquility.
