SANParks: Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park

If you’re looking to experience something that is truly off the beaten track, situated in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by natural beauty, then look no further than |Ai- |Ais/Richtersveld National Park.

The dramatically desolate park can only be reached in 4×4 vehicles, which will come in handy for exploring the rugged terrain. Tiny succulents and other greenery litter the mountain faces in a colourful spectacle – thriving alongside quiver trees, tall aloes and ‘half-mens’ in this harsh and water-scarce environment. In between the rocks and natural terrariums, rock hyraxes scrounge for food among ground squirrels, jackal buzzards and Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra.


  • An authentically off-the- beaten-track experience in South Africa
  • No ATM, shops or restaurants so take your own supplies
  • The park can only be reached in 4×4 or high clearance vehicle
