Namaqualand South
is located in the Western Cape region of South Africa.

Namaqualand is a vast, arid area of rocky plains and stark mountains which stretches almost 400km up to the border with Namibia. The area is famed for it fabulous show of desert flowers each spring, June to October, but peaking in August and September.

Namaqualand South covers the part of the region closest to Cape Town and therefore most easily visited by self-drivers not also going on north to the Kalahari and Namibia.

The town of Vanrhynsdorp is located out on the harsh rocky plains to the east, whilst Nieuwoudtville and Calvinia are higher and better watered. A circuit around both should ensure a good range of flowers in season.

Oudrif ... is an exceptional accommodation option, a genuine eco-lodge built out of straw bales and offering a wide range of subtle experiences designed to unravel the wonderful desert landscapes of the area.

Papkuilsfontein Farm ... is a particularly interesting farm-stay, largely because it offers some good hiking, including a very impressive 'private' waterfall.
