Richtersveld Transfrontier Park – > Botswana to Namibia to Richtersveld

The Richtersveld Transfrontier Park is a national park like no other. For miles and miles there are nothing but half-human plants and sand. Rarely will you see another person and if you do it is far beyond the horizon, yet somewhere between these miles of nothing, the best fauna and flora can be found.

Sendelingsdrift Rest Camp is the main camp of the park. All guests visiting the Park are required to check in here. This camp is stunning and they have a swimming pool, which you will fall in love with in the African heat and a shop where you can find ice (yaaay).

Pootjiespram Rest Camp is the largest camp in the park. It is less built up as Sendelingsdrift and only 11 kilometres away. The thing that sets this camp apart from the rest is the fact that it is right on the banks of the Orange River, what a treat! This also means that you can fly fish from this camp for tiger fish! You can also go river rafting and swimming in this amazing River, keep an eye out for birds as amazing sightings can be made.

If you are planning to stay at De Hoop Campsite you will be sleeping right on the bank of the Orange River. You don`t get much better than this. It might be a site less luxuries but it`s all worthwhile if you just stop and take a look around.

If you are at all interested in off road 4×4 driving, this is the place for you. They have tons of off road tracks to choose from and each is more exciting than the next. Fly-fishing and river rafting on the river are also very popular. On the Namibian side the awesome Fish River Canyon and the /ai /ais hot springs are the main attractions.

Enjoy the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park!
