Richtersveld Hiking Trail

The Richtersveld Hiking Trail departs daily from The Growcery Camp. We have mapped a very interesting hiking trail from our camp. This is a guided hike and can take anything from 1-3hours, all depending on our hikers. We have two hiking trails at hand.

Our camp is sandwiched between two mountain ranges and the Orange River. The Richtersveld hiking trails take an adventurous route exploring these rugged desert mountains. Hiking these rugged mountains and being on foot will bring you closer to understanding the Richtersveld Desert.

Our Richtersveld hiking trails are all from our camp. We also offer 1-8 hour guided hiking trails. The perfect way to discover the large endemic succulent population of the Richtersveld. You can discover the indigenous Quiver trees ‘ Aloe Dichtoma” on your hiking trail as well. We recommend that you take a small day pack and wear hiking shoes. Our Richtersveld hiking trail starts with an explanation about the trail and our preparations are done at camp.

As part of the hiking trail fee, you will receive  1,5 litres of water for the duration of your hiking trail.  Hiking the Richtersveld is a  great way to start or end your day. There is no better way than to discover the Richtersveld on foot. Our dedicated Australian cattle dogs will join you and guide most of the way. They are enthusiastic hikers and know these mountains just as well as our guides.

You can book your guided hiking trail at camp. Our afternoon sunset hikes are really popular and allow for spectacular views of the Orange River and the Richtersveld.
