Walkabout | Last Chance to See | Richtersveld | 7 Days | date to be confirmed
Join Melanie Walker as she explores the Richtersveld on her 'Last Chance to See' tor to this desert landscape characterised by rugged kloofs and high mountains, situated in the north-western corner of South Africa’s Northern Cape province.
It is full of changing scenery from flat, sandy, coastal plains, to craggy sharp mountains of volcanic rock and the lushness of the Orange River, which forms the border with neighboring Namibia.
The area ranges in altitude from sea level, to 1,377m at Cornellberg. Located in the north-eastern side of the Northern Cape province in South Africa, the Richtersveld is regarded as the only arid biodiversity hotspot on earth and the majority of the area is inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List due to its cultural values.
