    Re: Namaqua Coastal Camp Sites

    To me the nicest is Skuinsklip. There are only two sites, but book both for your privacy - it will only cost you an extra couple of hundred bucks. Koringkorrel has a very nice site right above the...

    Hi Koos

    Just out of interest, the Raffia Palm trail at Umlalazi, is it safe? I felt a bit creeped out looking for vultures there last year.

    If you've done Richtersveld solo I don't see why you would not be able to do Namakwa. I did it with a buddy, although we were one vehicle and we never saw another vehicle on the route over...
