Vingerklip Hiking Trail

This trail is an easy circular hiking trail and starts at base camp/main guest area.  A profuse show of Namaqualand’s love language, the desert blooming during a good rainy season.  Flora life in abundance. Duiker buck ducking into bushes when surprised. On a clear sunny day beautiful views of hills upon hills stretching out towards the west coast and on a foggy day the mysterious fog rolling in providing life giving moisture to both plant and animal life. An exhilarating trail.
