SANParks: Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier 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.
