Fodor's Expert Review Agama Tented Camp

20 km (12 miles)past Garies, Klipfontein, Northern Cape, South Africa

This camp is open in and out of Namaqualand's world-renowned wildflower season. The tented bush camp is 20 km (12 miles) north of Garies and accommodates 14 people at any given time. All tents have their own private bathrooms and spacious decks from where one absorbs this relatively unexplored part of the country, but there's no electricity, so only lanterns are used to light the tents (bring your own flashlight). Whether it is an early morning drive, a sundowner while taking in the breathtaking views, a hike, or just some time huddled around a fire in the kookskerm (boma), this experience will touch all your senses. There is a generator for emergencies, but no cell service. Remember, you came here to escape. No children under 12 are allowed.
