Gravel Road to Skilpad Rest Camp which is the main entrance to Namaqua National Park and location of the Park Offices

Access Info

Please not that general road maps show various possible routes to the park - all likely to get you lost, with only one leading you to the Park offices. The best route is through Kamieskroon, where you turn East from the N7, then left onto the gravel road, passing underneath the N& in a westerly direction to the Skilpad Office and the Park.
