Namakwa is a tourist destination of choice where tourists can watch wild flowers during the spring. The banks of the Orange River as well as the Namakwa coastline offer great hiking and 4x4 excursions for the outdoor enthusiast, while the nomadic Nama culture of the region is a unique drawcard. Stargazing in Sutherland, tasting Karoo Lamb chops in the Hantam area and picturesque scenic drives in the Kamiesberg are also popular among our existing tourist market.
The Namakwa region consists of the former Namaqualand and Hantam Karoo regions, and is bordered by the Orange River to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Geographically, the region can be described as a semidesert area with hot summers, little rainfall and cold winters.
