Namakwa Toere & Akkommodasie BK
What makes Namakwa Tours different?
•We’ve been in the tour industry since 1985 and in the hotel industry since 1987. We moved from Pretoria and came to establish ourselves in Namaqualand.
•We are now “Namakwalanders” and know our region. We only provide tours in our region.
•We are a family business and are tour guides ourselves. Our tour guides have a passion for their work and ensure you of the best, friendliest, competent and helpful tour guides!
•After many years of experience we have come to realise the different needs of every tour member and it is for this reason that we handle each booking personally.
•We are registered tour guides. If you ever go on a tour in South Africa always ask your tour guide to show their tour guide-ID-card. On the back of the card it will indicate whether the guide is registered for the area in which they operate. It is unfortunate that it is not efficiently enforced in South Africa. (Yearly, we see tour operators in Namaqualand and our region that do not make use of registered guides in our area. There are even cases where guides are not registered at all. This is against the law. Please be on the lookout). Report these incidences with the Tour Guide Registration Office, Cape Town tel. 021 483 2960.
Where is the accommodation when I tour with Namakwa Tours?
•We sleep in our own hotel, Namaqualand Country Lodge, in Vanrhynsdorp – the heart of Namaqualand. This means, you only unpack your suitcase once.
•Although our hotel rooms are all on ground level with private bathrooms and we travel with luxurious busses, we are unfortunately not completely wheelchair friendly. Because we stay over in one place, we don’t have to rush through our tour programme. Our bus driver is not under any pressure and when you tour with us, you are truly on holiday.
•Our dinners and breakfast at the Namaqualand Country Lodge are buffet meals. We ensure you of a wide variety of meat, vegetables, salads and dessert. Namaqualand Country Lodge is known for its sumptuous and hearty meals.
