Heavy Richtersveld Rains in April 2018

In April we saw the first high water on the Orange River in 4 years!  What a sight!

The river increased by approximately 3.5 m and peaked at about 500 cubic meters/s.

Heavy Richtersveld Rains

April also saw sporadic heavy downpours in the area, which is a rare occurrence for us.  It means that we will have a fantastic flower season in Namaqua National Park during August and September. It is not common to receive such good heavy rains in the Richtersveld during April. This rugged Richtersveld mountain desert is home to a variety of succulent species. Good rains in this region will result in a phenomenal flowering season.

If you would like to experience the flower in Namaqua, book a Namaqua Safari with us.  See details HERE
