The Namaqua National Park lies within a vast landscape, 495 kilometers from Cape Town, and close to the little town of Kamieskroon, just off the N7 route to Namibia. The coastal section of the park which stretches between the Groenrivier and the Spoegrivier provides a unique 4x4 coastal drive along some of the most pristine beaches in South Africa

Accommodation

The Groenrivier Coastal Campsites consist of 11 camping areas
The camps are all rustic and aim to maintain the wilderness character of this coastline.
Guests need to bring everything they may need for camping. The sites have no water or ablutions, and only some have enviro loos.
