The Namaqua is relatively large for a Dwarf Chameleon, reaching up to 16 cm in length. It also has a relatively stocky build, and the shortest tail of its genus. It has several distinctive “gular” grooves under its chin, running from its mouth down to the top of its chest. In colour it is a dull, mottled brown-grey.
