Namaqua Quest 12 day Trail Run Tour

Namaqua and Cape 12 day Trail Run and Game Tour…

The Namaqua Quest Trail run 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 running or hiking or running the best routes and see the best of the famous Namaqua landscape and flowers. The fun doesn’t stop there as we travel back to the Cape to see the Big Five in luxury accommodation and have a final ocean view in the Cape Waterfront
