Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape

Overview

AA renowned national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Richtersveld is also home to the Nama people – herders who have lived off the land for many years. The Richtersveld is a great place to go on 4x4 adventures, bird-watching getaways and canoe adventures. The Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape is a remarkable mountainous desert region in the north-west Cape. There’s a special kind of richness to the light in this part of the world, freshness in the air. The Northern Cape skies are clear and it is an area of extraordinary biodiversity, ranging from small succulents to giant aloes, from African wild cats to antelope and many rare bird species endemic to the region.
