Garies, in the heart of the Namaqualand in South Africa, is the home of the Garies Guest House.
This guest house offers comfortable self-catering (self-contained) accommodation, ideal for visitors who want to experience the annual spectacle of the Namaqualand flower season from August to September.
It is then that the dry, barren veld is changed into a colourful caleidoscope of colour, when small wildflowers covers the Namaqualand in South Africa for as far as the eye can see.
Garies Guest House is also the perfect stop-over if you are on your way between Namibia and Cape Town.
Garies Guest House offers 8 self-catering chalets, all fully serviced and en suite, and with their own braai facilities and safe parking.
The Guest House is in the centre of Garies, which is a little town some 460 km north of Cape Town and 47 south of Kamieskroon in the Namaqualand, South Africa.
Garies owes its name to the Nama word for the grass (Cynodon dactylon) that grows abundantly in the river bed.
