The flowers in the park this year were spectacular and apart from really horrendously corrugated roads the park is lovely

The Skilpad Namaqua Flower Camp is situated in a great location for viewing the flower spectacle. As the flowers usually only appear in August/September, this camp is only open for about 6 weeks during that period. The tent is comfortable, although small.

Beautiful flowers as far as the eye can see. We did a 5 day tour of the area and would highly recommend it. you can self drive but we found doing the tour made everything easier, plus our guide Kieth, knew where to go to see the best flowers. He also knew which rest stops and lunch places were good.

Just returned from an amazing bus trip of the flowers of Namaqualand with Fouriesburg Country Tours.Besides seeing the remarkable flowers, one was shown various Nature Reserves, waterfalls, towns and other amazing sites. Covered over 5,000 kilometres within 10 days and saw many parts of the country I had never visited. A truly remarkable experience.

Blankets of flowers stretching miles. Unbelievably wonderful and the colours don't seem natural they are so vivid. It is both VERY seasonal and VERY weather dependant. If it's cold and wet the daisies close up and can hardly be seen. When they are out in all their glory they turn to face the sun - so look with your back... More

We did a five day tour with Namaqua Tours ( Namakwa Toere). What an experience. The flowers were beautiful along the West Coast, in the Biedouw valley, on the way to Wupperthal, etc etc. Loved every minute of this trip. Will recommend this to everyone.

We visited it in August/September 2015 and were lucky since it was a great year for flowers - the amount and variety of flower everywhere surpassed all our expectations. Amazing trip - have to do it!
