Welcome to Namakwa & the Hantam Karoo

Namakwa and the Hantam Karoo are proficient magicians, who perform their favourite trick each spring, shaking off winter’s bite with an explosion of colour and covering the sunbaked desert in a spectacular, multihued wildflower blanket. The name Hantam actually means 'mountain where the red edible flowers bloom' in Khoi-Khoi. The Namakwa region takes its name from the Nama (also known as Namkwa or Namaqua, which means ‘Nama people’), a Khoekhoen tribe.
