|Ai |Ais / Richtersveld Transfrontier Park
(A World Heritage Site)

Hauntingly beautiful and seared by a blistering sun, the lava mountains and sandy plains form southern Africa’s largest mountain desert Park. In August 2003 an international treaty was signed between the presidents of South Africa and Namibia to form the Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park.

This has opened the way for the new border crossing within the Park, which opened in 2007.

A pont at Sendelingsdrift now takes you across the Orange River, which devides the two countries. It is a good idea however to check with the SA side of the Park to make sure that the pont is running, as operations can be suspended for safety reasons, such as the river being in flood. Though surrealistically harsh (this is the driest area in the Northern Cape), the rugged Richtersveld side of the Park nurtures some 30% of all South Africa’s succulent plant species. With less than 50mm of rain each year, it is home to leopard, lizards and adventurers.

Paradoxically beautiful, it is a land for those keen to “rough it”. You can explore it from the comfort of your 4x4 or paddle the river, taking in the awe-inspiring, seldom-seen purity of an unspoilt wilderness.

The opening of the Transfrontier Park has lead to the development of far more comfortable accommodation camps on the South African side. All five camping sites now have full ablution facilities.

There are two wilderness camps, Tatasberg and Gannakourieb, which are fully equipped, self-catering camps and at Sendelingsdrift there are 10 self-catering units.
