What’s Inside?
Namaqualand is world famous for its annual wildflower displays, which bloom in haphazard profusion each Spring. But there’s much more to Namaqualand than just ‘daisies’. So, let’s explore the unique landscapes, fascinating culture and captivating biodiversity of what’s been called the richest desert in the world.

Along the way, we’ll meet the people of the Richtersveld World Heritage Site, traverse rugged mountain deserts in the Richtersveld National Park, visit the copper fields around Springbok, dig for diamonds along the Orange River, drive through the beautiful Namaqua National Park, stop over at the flower ‘capital’ of Nieuwoudtville, and pop in at all the charming ‘dorpies’ in between.

Filled with historical stories, colourful personalities and natural wonders, More Than Daisies is an unforgettable road trip through a remarkable landscape.

Also included: a comprehensive Planning Guide with 4 custom maps containing all the info you need to arrange a trip to Namaqualand for yourself.

RRP: R275 (incl. VAT)

230 pages with four maps of the region / softcover / dimensions: 210x148mm
