A world away from the lush, safari-visited jungles and plains of Africa, Namaqualand, a largely unknown and overlooked corner of South Africa offers a beauty unsurpassed by all else.
Agama Tented Camp invites you to experience this drought-ravaged wilderness both in and out its world-renowned floral season.
Get closer to nature and discover the haunting beauty of Namaqualand by staying in a tent. Not just any tent, but a unique, top-class tented camp. Agama Tented Camp, Namaqualand’s newest bush camp experience, lies in the heart of an 8 000 ha farm, 20 km north from Garies, in the centre of the floral kingdom.
In good seasons the veld around Agama Tented Camp is carpeted with flowers in breathtaking hues. Visitors can stroll through the veld soaking up the beauty. There is a variety of wild flower routes within an hours drive from the camp. Flower maps available at the camp.
Best kept secret in the Northern Cape, tucked away in the beautiful Namaqualand - so for no regrets, contact us well way in advance!

Agama Tented Camp is a bush camp, a breakaway, skillfully hidden in a secluded “kloof”. It does not intrude into the world of the wild, it is part of it.
Here up to 14 guests at a time can relax, unwind and totally enjoy the refreshing experience of becoming part of the bush, with a variety of small game and Gemsbuck, while enjoying sundowners as the kaleidoscope of day gives way to the blackness of night and stars, only a touch away.
The comfortable tented accommodation all have their own private bathrooms and spacious decks from where you can absorb this relatively unexplored part of the country. Whether it is an early morning drive, sundowners with breathtaking views, a hike or huddled around a fire in the Kookskerm (Boma), Agama Tented Camp will touch all your senses and offer you an unforgettable experience.
