AI-|AIS-/RICHTERSVELD NA­TIONAL PARK

WOW (Women on Wheels) - - WOW -

Tucked into the great bend of the Or­ange River is the Richtersveld, a bar­ren wilder­ness in­ter­rupted by equally bar­ren and con­torted moun­tain ranges. This is the north­ern edge of Na­maqua­land, with its out­stand­ing range of small rep­tiles, birds and mam­mals and a great va­ri­ety of plant life (some species are found nowhere else). A 4x4 is best if you’re vis­it­ing the park, but ve­hi­cles with high ground clear­ances can reach most spots. There is no spe­cific route that can be booked in ad­vance. Once in­side the park, camp­ing is the only ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tion, but there are five camps.
