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 interior and along the coast; west of the N7 national road. The Namaqua Camino’s Camini takes you via an inland route to the coast. Both the routes are circular, starting and ending in Hondeklipbaai. It is an assisted slack-pack walk which means that you walk with a light day pack and your tent and Namaqua Camino bags will be safely transported to the next overnight camp. The 10 day - 260 km Namaqua Camino is a challenging walk that will test your endurance at times - please prepare thoroughly and in well in advance for this walk. The terrain differs from day-to-day. The long daily distances, hard gravel roads, deep sandy tracks and steep uphill stages during day two and three are difficult. The Namaqua Camino’s 4 - 7 Day Camini is a more leisurely walk but you still need to prepare beforehand in order to be walking fit. The dates for the Camino and Camini 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 but we do supply hot showers with rationed water. Bucket toilets are available at the overnight camps and along the route. You will be responsible to pitch your tent when you arrive at the overnight camp. Water is rationed to 5 litres per person per day for personal use. Drinking water, however, is always available in the camp and along the daily stages.
