The Namaqua Coastal Route is located in the Northern Cape province of South Africa and stretches from the west coast to the Kamiesberg mountain range east of the town Kamieskroon. The route is part of the greater Namaqua region.

When hearing the word 'Namaqualand', those in the know tend to immediately think of wild flowers – carpets upon carpets of oranges, pinks, whites and yellows. This is one of South Africa's most famous natural spectacles, occurring in springtime after a winter of adequate rainfall. The Namaqua Coastal Route is situated in the centre of the Succulent Karoo Biodiversity Hotspot.

Reasons to visit:

The route has plenty to offer in the way of activities and relaxation and caters to travellers looking for both.  Of course the spring flowers are a popular drawcard for many visitors but there is more than just a tapestry of wildflowers to discover here. Inland there are hiking and mountain biking trails galore the provide the opportunity to visit the famous Bethel’s Klip, while those looking for something less energetic can relax in the Kookfontein hot springs or keep their eyes peeled and enjoy game viewing in the Namaqua National Park.  Adrenaline junkies will enjoy the numerous 4x4 routes and foodies can sample traditional fare in a Kamiesberg Kookskerm with the locals. 

The west coast provides rustic camping opportunities and during the annual season, experienced divers will be able to bring in a bounty of crayfish to enjoy on the braai. Angling is 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.

The Kamiesberg Flower Trail Run is an annual run that takes place during the flower season between August and the end of September. It consists of a 20km loop on the Rooiberg Hiking Trail and a 10km trail alternative for runners who prefer a shorter distance as well as a 5km fun walk. The 20km race starts with a tough 12km ascent to the summit of the Northern Cape's highest peak the Rooiberg, followed by an 8km down the valley to the finish line. The finish line has cooling waters of the farm dam and some local food prepared by the ladies in the 'kookskerm' (food Kraal). Family members can enjoy playing traditional games on the farm, while runners enjoy the routes.
