Wonderful! We will most definitely visit the park again, but this time in the 'flower season'.It is advisable to use the access road from the N7 road between Kammieskroon and Springbok.

A little gem that we will visit again and tell all our friends about it.

We wanted a place to overnight on our way to Cape Town, not expecting such a well equipped and comfortable chalet. It's a shame we could not stay longer and explore the park. Definitely a next time.

Chris Brand

It was wonderful.

Hannelie Joubert

Very very good.

We enjoyed a magical 2 days at Namaqua Reserve. The cottage was home from home, well equipped and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. The wildflowers were out and an extra bonus was frequent sightings of the buck in the reserve, all looking sleek and well fed. We saw springbok, red Hartebeest and Gemsbok. We were sorry to leave and would have liked to stay a week. The only problem is the appalling state of the access road from Kamieskroon to the reserve which shook our car to pieces all the way in and out.

My husband & I spent one night at Skilpad Rest Camp. It was absolutely fabulous.The word 'rest camp' gives one the impression that its a very basic camp - NOT THE CASE.The chalet was lovely, beautifully clean and crisp. And what a lovely view over the mountains.I'm sure it would be beautiful when the flowers are blooming. Would come back there any time.

What a lovely place to stay. The chalets are very good, staff friendly and had a wonderful meal at the farm restaurant.

The accommodation at Skilpad camp is amazing, the attention to detail is super. We each even got a chocolate on our pillow. The staff are friendly and efficient. The Namaqua Park is all about the fauna and flora, we did see a black Springbok. I will definitely go back again.

The accommodation was really fantastic,and we would have stayed longer if we had the time. I was not impressed with the staff at reception as they did not appear to know about the booking. Similarly there was no pamphlets available for the public. Other than that you guys have improved your facilities tremendously. Well done.

The staff - the accommodation - the nature reserve = just an extra-ordinary experience. We just loved it and the staff were exemplary.Regards

Huisies kort matte op die vloere veral in die badmamer.Park is goed, blomme gemiddeld mooi tot mooi. Diere maar min en skaars. 4x4 roete goed tot uitstekend. Kampplekke langs kus lyk indrukwekkend.

Unfortunately, I enjoyed our stay so much with the splendid view from the huts over the fields up to the ocean that I have to keep it a secret. Sorry to do this. Jodi, at the reception as well as all the other staff and the "Padstal" were exceptional. The local food was excellent. I am pleased as an South African that we could contribute in this way to local income generation and work creation! The research into role of the Anatolian dogs in nature conservation is an exceptional example of lateral thinking. Thank you for sharing this secret. We intend to keep it out of selfishness and will never share it, for fear of never getting another chance to visit.

What a treat to stay in such a well organised park. Simple and well-thought out. Even in a heavy east wind we enjoyed being 'outside' as we used the glassed veranda. The views are simply incredible and we saw a great variety of mammals, birds and flowers.


By far the best chalets in the Sanparks group. The peace and quiet changes the entire experience. Driving the Eco route was an experience in itself. The game does not seem to bothered by visitors concidering the amount of visitors per annum. We will be back once a year

Very nice and neat.

Tiena Faul

Although we stayed only one night in the camp, it was a wonderful experience. We will come back
