Southern Africa Travel Guide

Richtersveld National Park


Country: South Africa
In the densely populated Northern Cape, close to the border with Namibia, lies the rugged Richtersveld. In its ecosystem you can find no less than 650 plant species, many endemic to the region. This includes the “Halfmensboom” (“Half-man tree”). The indigenous Nama people see these as the personification of their ancestors. Best time to visit: spring (August/September) when the Namaqualand daisies are in full bloom!

TESTIMONIAL

Our two nights on the secluded zambezi island were out of this world, something we will never forget. The houseboat trip was about as relaxing as you get, with great tiger fishing being an added bonus. A real African experience I had very high expectations and they were easily surpassed !!!
