Namaqua Camino   Let your soles touch the earth and  let the earth touch your soul About the Namaqua Camino
        Namaqualand is an arid region in the north- western part of South Africa.  It covers over 1,000 kilometres (600 mi).  The Namaqua Camino route meanders through the spectacular interior and along a beautiful section of pristine coastline, west of the N7 national road. The Namaqua Camino is an assisted slack packing walk which means that you walk with a light day pack and the rest of your camping gear and belongings will be safely transported to the next overnight camp. You will walk between 21 and 30 kilometres daily and thus will have to be 100% walking fit. The terrain differs from day to day.  From long hard gravel roads to deep sandy tracks, the Namaqua Camino has it all and more!  The dates for the Camino have been selected specifically during a time of the year when the weather is supposed to be temperate but as we all know, Mother Nature is fickle and extreme weather (very hot, cold or rainy) might be experienced during this time. Facilities in the overnight camps are basic and rugged BUT all are situated on a private farm or in the Namaqua National Park.  Water is rationed to 5 litres per person per day for personal use.  Eco toilets will be available at the overnight camps and along the route. You will be responsible to pitch your own tent when you arrive at the overnight camp. Drinking water, however, is always available in the camp and along the daily stages. Sweet and savory snacks, coffee and tea and dinner are served at every overnight camp. Bread, butter, spreads and jam will be available for you to prepare sandwiches for lunch. Fresh fruit, coffee, tea, muesli, yoghurt and rusks are served every morning.
