The trail in the Northern Cape is a wonderful way to see what otherwise an extremely inhospitable, remote section of South Africa. The sand roads are accessible only by 4X4 vehicles, there is no water along the coast, no cellphone reception, no development or facilities of any kind. The Silver Sands Trail has opened up this exquisite area to hikers seeking a luxurious journey down the pristine coastline of the country's premier Namaqualand flower-viewing area. The duration is 5 days (plus extra day traveling home) and a distance of 55km with a difficult factor of 3 along the beach.

Spoegrivier Caves..
Spoegrivier Caves is one of our highlights on the Silver Sands hike. The caves are truly spectacular, both scenic and in history. .

Aristea Shipwreck...
We visit Hondeklipbaai on the Diamond Coast and the shipwreck of the "Aristea" which stranded here in the rough waters in 1945.

Base Camp...
The Fully catered base camp with comfortable tenting accommodation, warm showers and toilet facilities. The Silver Sands team of experts will make your hike a journey to remember.

Namaqua Siver Sands Hiking started 9 years ago in 2008. It all began with the love and passion for nature, and from there it involved into what it is today. There are so many stories that was shared over the years around the campfire, some really good ones and others that we do not want to relive. But through it all we grew with the hiking trail, step by step. We as the developers of this family businesse are proud to call Silver Sands our success story. We have done a lot to create something that all of our hikers can enjoy. Each day is a new reminder of the hard work that went into developing Namaqua Silver Sands, and now in 2017, we are so proud to put our next trail on the map, The Curlew Trail.
There are no doubts that the The Curlew Trail will also be the fruit of hard work and just as successful as our Silver Sands Trail.

Hard work, dedication, team work and a friendly service are the four foundation blocks of this company’s pride.
