The clock is ticking quickly down to Namaqualand Flower Festival, and if you’re lucky to be headed to this bucket list event, then the call of Gifberg Holiday Farm is probably strong right now. Sprouting from a rustic, tranquil resort into a trove of music, culture and adventure – and headed up by No Danger Diaries’ joy provider team – there’s no other place like it.
Whether this year marks your first or 12th visit to the festival, let this guide help show you the way when packing for the vast and varied lineup of activities.
Before you begin, think about this first
The Namaqualand Flower Festival is set in a biodiversity hotspot with no less than 6 endemic species of plant life in the area. Because of this, there is a strong drive to avoid the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. To some that up:
1. Only bring what you really need
2. Reuse, reduce, respect.
See some tips for that here.
Now, what to pack
