Renowned for its stunning, striking carpets of flowers that bloom after the spring rains, the Namaqua National Park is one of nature's greatest spectacles. Butterflies, birds and long-tongued flies dart around among the flowers, seemingly overwhelmed by the abundance and diversity. The Speckled Cape Tortoise, the world's smallest, is found here. Providing spectacular views of this unique landscape, Skilpad Rest Camp provides comfortable, well-equipped accommodation. It provides 4 chalets, each with 2 single beds in the bedroom and a sleeper couch in the open plan living room/kitchen. A dining area is available on the enclosed veranda, and an indoor fireplace and an outside braai area is also provided. One unit has been adapted for use by guests with challenged mobility. The kitchen is fully equipped. Guests can explore the myriad life forms of Namaqualand on hikes, walks, and 4x4 trails, and nature trails. There are also several picnic sites dotted around the park.
