Richtersveld

...

... is a very remote part the Northwest region of South Africa, a wild, desolate but rather interesting area.

The coast around Port Nolloth is diamond-mining territory, drawing a wild mix of tough people ... fishermen, diamond divers and their associates. It has a rough frontier atmosphere, with much talk of illicit smuggling and unlicensed firearms.

Bedrock Lodge ... although very simple, is the default place to stay.


Up on the border Alexander Bay is much more of a diamond company town, with orderly housing and even a golf course of sorts.

Inland lies the Richtersveld, an extremely wild and tough landscape, the country's only true desert, with place names like Hellskloof and Skeleton Gorge. The area can become covered with flowers August and September.

Umkulu Vioolsdrif ... is renowned for white-water rafting along the Orange River.
