The Goegap Nature Reserve is about 7 000 ha. It has recorded about 600 plant, 45 mammal and 94 bird species.

The reserve is characterized by granite domes and peaks with sandy plains between.

The Hester Malan Wild Flower Garden within the reserve showcases many Namakwa succulents and features a rock garden.
There is a 17km road to drive, and 4×4 routes for exploring remoter areas, popular with mountain bikers. There are also several trails, including a short Waterfall Trail (4km).
There are picnicking facilities and accommodation is available in basic four-bed huts and campsites.

The reserve is open - with an entrance fee - 08:00 to 16:30 all year round. The best time for floral displays is August-September, but the plants and animals are worth seeing all year round, although summer can be hot.
