Richtersveld Transfrontier Park straddles the border between South Africa and Namibia, and I is rich in plant and animal species all carefully adapted to survive in a seemingly barren desert landscape.
On the Namibian side of the reserve visitors, will experience the harsh landscape found here and can be slightly jarring when you first arrive for the first time. After a few hours, one becomes accustomed to the dry sands and arid surroundings and you will start to take in the natural beauty of the superb scenery all around you.
The Orange River cuts through the centre of the reserve, creating a green oasis that is stark in contrast to the surrounding landscape. This area is not a destination of substantial game viewing, but when you spend some time here you will pay attention to the species that are found here, and find the experience will be highly rewarding.
