Richtersveld Safari

The custom design of our 4 x 4 vehicles is perfect to endure the roads of the Richtersveld. Our Richtersveld Safari trails depart from The Growcery Camp. We explore the nearby conservancy and follow the two spoor and gravel tracks in the area. Our 4 x 4 trips are suitable for a day or a half-day visit.

Our Richtersveld Safari aims to introduce you to the Unique and the only mountain desert in South Africa.

This rugged mountain desert provides unique and exclusive safari experiences. The Richtersveld is unusual for the semi-precious minerals and extraordinary rock formations.

Succulents in this region are endemic to the Richtersveld Region. It is well known for the half mens plants that grow within the area. Besides the halfmens plants, the site is rich in quiver trees and endemic localised succulents.

1-3 Hour Richtersveld Safari – Introduction to the area. 

We explore the Nababeep Conservancy and introduce you to the only mountain desert in South Africa. We provide a guided safari vehicle and include mineral water on this trail. These trips are in the mornings and afternoons, and a minimum of 4 people secures a trip. The Richtersveld is known for its volcanic mountains and indigenous succulent vegetation. The desert provides an extraordinary landscape with unique life and vegetation.

We invite you to explore this desert environment. A large number of endemic succulents are unique to this region. These succulents are growing between the Quartz deposits. It is not uncommon to view some raptors and klipspringers in this area. We even find Kudu antelopes from time to time. The great escape to this rugged region will offer you insight into the lifestyle and the living of the Richtersveld.

Our customised safari vehicles offer a high viewpoint and access to this remote mountainous Richtersveld. Our Richtersveld safaris will explore the Nababeep Conservancy within the Richtersveld Region.
