The Namaqua Flower Hike
The Namaqua Flower hike has been developed so that you will experience the best flowers in the area at the time of the hike. We will hike each day at a different venue depending on where the best flowers are at that moment. The distances are do-able for fit beginners, but you must still be able to hike for 14km. The hike is also not just about the hike and flowers but to give you an experience of the real Namakwa people, how the locals live, the history of Namakwa, the beauty of the koppies (small hills), the copper history, the language of the people and so much more.
