WWhere is Riemvasmaak?

Riemvasmaak is close to the Namibian border, situated between the mighty Orange River and the now dry, Molopo River. It is north of the Augrabies Falls, about 60km from the small Northern Cape town of Kakamas.

It covers a large area of the Northern Cape and has imposing mountains, extensive desert plains and miles of unspoiled wilderness. Dating back millions of years, Riemvasmaak is a place of haunting beauty.
