Richtersveld Transfrontier Park is located in the north west of the Northern Cape, starting in South Africa and stretching across the border into Namibia. Apart from the many species of animals, that are capable of surviving the extreme heat of summer and the cold of winter, the park also has abundant floral diversity. The area boasts the richest desert flora in the world. The Richtersveld has several unusual plants, one of the most famous is the ‘halfmen tree’. This tree is endemic to this area and is said to look like a man from the side, providing you use a little imagination of course! Enjoy this rugged landscape, famous for its high mountains, surreal rock formations and beautiful Orange River.
