About Sendelingsdrif Rest Camp |Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld Park SANParks

Rugged kloofs, high mountains and dramatic landscapes that sweep inland from the Orange River, divulge the fact that you are now in the vast mountain desert that is the Richtersveld National Park, an area managed jointly by the local Nama people and the South African National Parks. This is a harsh and unpredictable land where water is scarce and life-sustaining moisture comes in the form of early morning fog, called ‘Ihuries’ or ‘malmokkies’ by the local people, which rolls in from the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean, sustaining a remarkable range of small reptiles, birds and mammals. A staggering assortment of plant life, some species occurring nowhere else, is to be found here, with gnarled quiver trees, tall aloes and quaint ‘half-mens’ keeping vigil over this inscrutable landscape.

Please not this park in on the South African side of the border.

PLEASE NOTE: the rates are subject to the number of adults and children staying. Quotes will include the 1% Community Levy, but will exclude daily conservation fees, which are to be paid directly to camp on arrival.

Mr Pieter Van Wyk was really interesting and informative.

Go there to experience this amazing geological formations and the exceptional fauna and flora of the Richtersveld! But you must drive a 4x4 and lower tyre pressure to prevent damage. I recommend the route via Vioolsdrift through Namibia - it's shorter and the road surface is exvellent!

This rest camp is favourably set on the bank of the Orange River. The cottage is spacious and well equipped which made for a comfortable overnight stay. I would use this accommodation again.

The cottages were not ready on time!Private person from filling station was using the cottage and we were expected to move in without even an apology from the staff or the individual. Bedsheets appeared have been used.Come on SANParks, if you want to keep going, you will have to improve.No discount given for Pensioners when we booked! We did not argue the point, but we received the discount at Augrabies.
