What an amazing trip this was for my hubby and me,we visited the Richterveld about 10yrs ago (April).....it was like walking on an exquisite blanket, there were cacti/succulents as the eye could see (we both love cacti & succulents, needless to say, we were in wonderland, unfortunately only the Koekerboom was in bloom, so for color its best to go in August)
We loved the solitude and swam for hours in the Orange River, we did not need our bathing costumes. The birds just about rested on my Hubbys toes while in the water.
Make sure to have your Sunblock, hat, a spade for toilet visits, drinking water, good hiking shoes. We took along a 20L solar shower.
We really enjoyed the adventure and plan to do it again...
NB: It was April 2010....refer to date below as incorrect.
