Where to eat

Matzikama offers a variety of adventures and places to explore. With the Maskam mountain range on the one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side, there are numerous cycling and hiking routes to explore. Make Tharrakamma your home away from home and enjoy our region.

Mountain Biking

Our region is a place for adventure. Matzikama offers a variety of cycling routes – a circle route across Gifberg, down to the coast or a trip into the Knersvlakte. Some of the routes are child friendly.

Hiking

Hike through the Maskam mountains, the West coast from Lamberts bay to Papendorp, explore the Knersvlakte searching for that minute succulents or walk the Saturday morning Parkrun.  Come stay with us and share your experience.

Off the Road

Whether you are a 4×4 fundi, or just a normal office worker, our district has something to offer for everyone off the beaten track. Go wild in The Dunes, crawl at Bergkraal 4×4 or do a daytrip to Skilpad for the flower explosion in August and September.

Route-de-Vin

Take the Namaqua West Coast wine route, swirl, smell, sip and swallow – moderately – some of the best award wines South Africa can offer. Enjoy the culinary feasts on the way and test your taste buds to the extreme. You’ll be back for more.

Join the Fun

Fauna

At first glance you may think here is no significant fauna. Look closer and you’ll find an abundance of different species, from Springbok to the small turtles and gogga’s, and even a near extinct frog in the veld closer to the coast at Brand-se-Baai.

Flora

It is near impossible to describe the Namaqualand flower season; it is flowers en masse. Then in the Knersvlakte you must be on your knees to find the tiny succulents. Although rare, you may also find the sundew on top of the Maskam Mountain.

Coastal Beauty

Whether you are a 4×4 fundi, or just a normal office worker, our district has something to offer for everyone off the beaten track. Go wild in The Dunes, crawl at Bergkraal 4×4 or do a daytrip to Skilpad for the flower explosion in August and September.

Milky Way

Pack a bottle wine, some snacks and do some stargazing from the Knersvlakte, explore the Milky Way, count the satellites and find your way back to us using the Southern Cross. Our clear skies is a stargazing haven for the avid stargazer trying to find our origins.
