About Goegap Nature Reserve

Lying about 70 km north of Kamieskroon and 15 km southeast of Springbok, Goegap Nature Reserve is a fantastic place to kick off your flower trip. Bearing in mind that the best route to travel for a flower trip is north to south so that you see the flowers facing the sun. “Goegap” derives its name from the Nama word for waterhole and there are plenty supporting the bird and animal residents.

The Hester Malan Wild Flower Garden has a wide and interesting selection of Namaqualand succulents. There’s a 17 km drive that sedans can negotiate and an 80 km 4x4 route. The landscape of granite boulders and sandy plains makes for stunning scenic driving on the narrow untarred roads. You could also hop onto the three hour guided truck tours during the flower season.

Look out for the Namaqualand Sandgrouse which has an amazing ability – it can store water in its breast feathers and fly as far as 40 km to quench the thirst of its nestlings. Twitchers will be kept busy with spotting all 94 recorded bird species. Home to 45 mammalian species, you will have a chance of spotting gemsbok, springbok, Hartman's Zebra, bat eared foxes and aardwolf amongst the incredible number of floral species.

Saddle up and ride on the wild side in this magnificent landscape with Namaqua Horse Trails: +27 27 877 82 5764.

On the milder side of keeping your carbon footprint down why not get on your bike and cycle the 17 km sedan route?

An absolute gem amongst the spoiled towns surrounding it. Except for the mine dump literally 10 meters beyond the northern boundary fence, the place has unspoiled beauty beyond believe! It is a pity there is only a short driving route for sedan vehicles. I would love to see the rest of the small nature reserve. Definitely one of my top favourite places on earth.
