The West Coast Diamond Experience, with its flowing dunes and mysterious shipwrecks is a rugged, nature experience along the unexplored north-west coast of South Africa's Northern Cape. These shores have remained virtually unknown to the public at large as it is within the restricted and previously forbidden diamond mining areas.

The route runs along the coast from Groenrivier mouth until Kleinzee and is ideal if you are looking for peace, tranquillity and adventure. Adrenaline junkies will enjoy the numerous 4x4 routes and foodies can sample traditional fare or superb seafood delicacies. 

The west coast provides rustic camping opportunities and during the annual season. Eperienced divers will be able to bring in a bounty of crayfish to enjoy on the braai. Angling is also good in this part of the world, as is bird watching, while those looking to relax can put their feet up with a book while the cool sea breeze sways them gently in a hammock.

The Nama culture along the west coast is also notable and a guided tour is a must, while those looking to explore on their own should check out the Trapsuutjies Hiking Trail in the Molyneux Nature Reserve in Kleinzee. Don’t forget to look out for the smallest species of tortoise in South Africa, the Namaqualand Speckled Padloper, which is endemic to this region.

Travellers please note:

There is no fuel available on Hondeklip Bay and fuel is only available in Kleinzee and Koiingnaas from 05:00 - 20:00 on weekdays and from 08:00 - 12:00 on Saturdays.

Certain stretches of road may require access permits and it is therefore recommended that travellers enquire before visiting the area.
