Skilpad says it with Flowers

Published: 08 June 2014

We are always humbled and grateful for partners willing to assist our researchers and students with their important conservation work, and in this case offer them a 'home from home' so that we know our visitors are well looked after while assisting us away from their loved ones. We would like to thank 'Skilpad Flowers' accommodation for its willingness to grant us partial accommodation sponsorship for the Predator Ecology and Coexistence Experiment (PEACE). 'Skilpad Flowers' is operated by Gloudine and Nathan Agenbag and is located a hop, skip and a jump from Skilpad Office in Namaqua National Park, one of the best places to enjoy the annual flower season.

They are equipped with a caravan park, braai facilities and electrical power points at each site (R200/site/2 people, R50/extra person). Or for a more luxurious stay, 'Skilpad Flowers' rents one flat and three self catering rooms (R450/night/2 people).

There is also a little shop on site where firewood and other items you may need for overnight visits can be purchased as well as a restaurant that offers breakfast, dinner and light meals if booked in advance. With the next flower season looming, be sure to book soon! Please contact Gloudine by phone (0276721314 or 0276721837) or alternatively email ([email protected]).
