The /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park

Overview

TThis is a magical place where dry landscapes and red dunes provide the backdrop to a singularly unique experience, one that can only be found in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The first proclaimed transfrontier park in Africa, it combines South Africa’s Kalahari Gemsbok National Park with Botswana’s Gemsbok National Park– over 3.6-million hectares – and is home to the famous black-maned lions, a wide range of antelope, as well as pygmy falcons. The national park offers over 200km (124 miles) of rough terrain, high-clearance, vehicle-required roads, and 4X4 adventure lovers will be in their element exploring the internal road network. There are also a number of mountain bike trails available and hikers can explore the reserve on foot, staying in the overnight facilities provided. Guides are available to lead hikers along one of the two-, three- or four-day trails. These trails are only accessible between April and September. The five-day hike through the Fish River Canyon, ending at the Ai Ais hot springs is a highly recommended activity, as is a long soak in the hot springs, found at the Ai Ais camp, afterwards.
