Richtersveld landscape

This area of South Africa is a wonderful place to visit, but one needs a sturdy 4X4 to travel here. An excursion to the Richtersveld needs careful planning. Water, food, fuel, and shelter, plus spare parts are required to have a comfortable trip through this arid region.

It looks like a barren landscape, but there is an incredible amount of diversity in plants, insects, reptiles, birds, and mammals here.
