The rustic farm-style setting of Die Houthoop is ideal for visitors to Namaqualand who would like to experience true Namaqualand hospitality.
Die Houthoop welcomes nature lovers who would like to see Namaqualand in all its splendor. The flower season starts from June to October when winter rains have converted the veldt to a green “winter wonderland”.
Quaint chapel on the farm which is available for christening or wedding services.
Informal walking trails are safe. You might see the “meerkat” or suricate, a “small mammal” while walking. There is a variety of plant life to enjoy on your walks and for the inquisitive person there is a world of insects, all the contributing to the unique ecosystem of the flower-utopia.
The cold Atlantic Ocean, dramatic West Coast and seasonal endemic wild flowers create an unique West Coast atmosphere. This is reflected at the Houthoop Guest farm. We invite you to our home where you can enjoy our hospitality and well-cooked homely meals, while relaxing in our rustic Namaqualand environment – a 100% big sky country.
Please feel free to view our Gallery and get an idea of the beauty that surrounds us.
Nothing like this true West Coast experience – a seafood buffet in
Die Houthoop open air facility. (Please pre book- subjected to
number of bookings.)
SEE THE FLORAL BEAUTY
The annual flower season is quite stunning and is certainly one of the natural wonders of the world. So, if you're at a loose end in August, September or October, you will catch our flowers in all their beauty. Please confirm flower status with hostess, or get a flower update from the Springbok Tourism office-
FUN IN THE WAVES
The nearby beaches are great and the swimming is safe. The old ship wrecks on the shoreline make interesting viewing and are a great subject for photographers.
SOME SERIOUS SAND BOARDING
Boarding down the slopes of the sand dunes is great fun and be ready to
reach some high speeds. (Only on Dune 4x4 route.) Do bring your boards along.
All in all there is always something to do in and around
Die Houthoop, bearing in mind that it is a
perfect place just to relax and take it
easy far away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
