|Orange River||The Orange River flows through relatively gently through the Richtersveld National Park on it's way into the South Atlantic. It's a great river with beautiful scenery. The river is home to plenty of fish which the local fish eagles depend along with the other animals dependent on it as a valuable source of water.|
|Flowers||Every year after the winter rains, between the months of June and October, the South African desert flowers come into bloom and the landscape of the Richtersveld is transformed into a multicoloured carpet of vibrant wild flowers.|
|Hike||There are many trails available to hikers. These are:|
The Kodaspiek Trail
The trails are controlled by South Africa National Parks and permission must first be obtained. It is also highly recommended that a qualified tour guide accompany any hiking groups. Ensure you have plenty of water, people know your intended route and have plenty of food and medical supplies for your adventure.
|Fish||The river is a great place to try your hand at yellow fish and barbel - catfish. Make sure you have the proper permits if you intend on fishing.|
|Star Gaze||The night sky in the Richtersveld is ideal for star gazing. The nearest major source of light is miles away and even the close towns don't put out enough light to affect the view of the stars. |
