Richtersveld National Park

The Richtersveld National Park is the last inviolate nature reserve in South Africa, maybe because of its extreme isolated location in the far northwest of the country. The park borders on the Orange River, which is also the natural border between South Africa and Namibia.

This park is known for its unique landscape and flora. The volcanic mountains bring about the scenic charm, which is further explored in the valleys and plateaus. The flora is represented by an incredible variety of succulents. Some of them are endemic and do not occur in any other place of the world, for example the "Halfmensboom". Curiosity might draw you towards this last, almost untouched part of South Africa.
