Namaqua Quest MTB Tour…
The Namaqua Quest is set in the Namaqua Karoo, a hot spot in South Africa. Here you will find the most beautiful annual flowers. This hidden gem in South Africa is a must see; imagine a desert covered in flowers. Come and experience this unreal landscape while taking part in a world class MTB event.
