|Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park
Desert tourism is set to bloom with the implementation of the transfrontier park in this once remote corner, especially given the increasing demand for adventure activities.
At present, this transfrontier park has limited visitor facilities. The |Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld National Park has three wilderness camps, five serviced campsites and an overnight camp for hikers. Each of the four nearby community settlements has a small rest camp with 8 – 12 beds. The South African government has allocated yet another R11 million to upgrade infrastructure and tourist accommodation.
On the Namibian side the |Ai-|Ais Hot Springs and Hobas offer more extensive tourist accommodation and camping facilities, with extensive luxury accommodation available at a number of adjacent privately managed lodges. Well-known state and privately run 5-day hiking trails are on offer in the cooler season.
The opening of the traditional pontoon in the park will greatly facilitate cross-border tourism.
