Go on a journey through an arid land as ancient as time, a land filled with hope, gratitude, and tenacity. Explore Mother Nature’s minute surprises – petals as delicate as silk and robust hardy succulents. From the colourful valleys at Skilpad to the rugged coastline at Groenriviermond, this journey is bound to get your heart racing.


A soulful destination of raw beauty, in season and out.

From the magnificent coastline of Namaqua National Park to the seemingly endless vistas in Skilpad, your heart will fill to overflowing.

Cast your eyes east and west, north and south and you will come across a floral kingdom that is hailed as one of the most spectacular in the world.

Pinks are not just pinks, neither are yellows just yellows, a daisy is not simply a daisy; splashes of mauve, magenta, pink and purple; seas of gold, delicate blues, and rich greens will fill your senses. Inland or coastal, Namaqualand is spring’s majestic affirmation of life in all its glory.

What a wonderful experience! The tiniest of flowers were such a treat. Lovely comfy bed, great dinners and friendly staff. A must for everyone’s bucket-list!

Adventures of the floral kind

Flowers by day and stars by night...linger longer.
