Start a Slackpacking Adventure in Hondeklip Bay, a coastal village in the Northern Cape, about an hours drive from the town of Springbok. The Silver Sands Trail is a new multi-day slackpacking trail that will take you through the beauty of Namaqualand on its route between the Spoeg and Groen rivers.

This trail is an ideal way for novice hikers and family groups to get those Boots Dirty while enjoying the natural beauty of this remote part of South Africa. The obvious time of year to enjoy this hike is during the spring when a spectacular kaleidoscope of blooming wild flowers light up the area with splashes of colour, but the hike has many other permanent highlights such as magnificent coastal scenery, a great variety of marine life - and at the end of the day comfortable overnight camps with wonderful food.
