Media Release: Namaqua land Springs To Life
The renowned Skilpad Section of the Namaqua National Park has opened its gates to visitors this flower season. The late and erratic rainfall has resulted in a later flower season, but the Skilpad Section is a mass of orange daisies. Visitors that take the time to walk some of the short trails will be rewarded with a spinning diversity of spring annuals and bulbs.
The Namaqua National Park is a developing conservation project that at this stage covers 50 000 hectares. It was officially opened on 4 August 1999 and aims to conserve the biodiversity of the succulent Karoo Biome.
Visitors to the Skilpad section can enjoy a 5 km circular drive, 2 short walking trails, picnic areas and ablution facilities.
The Park is open during August and September from 8:00 to 17:00 daily. Entrance Fees: R10.00 per person. Buses pay an additional R80.00.
