We're traveling through Namibia next February, and would like to re-enter South Africa from Ais Ais Springs Spa; is that currently an option? And how long would it take to get from there to Tatasberg Wilderness camp please?!

Welcome to the forum tinadavey.

The entry to the South African part of Richtersveld is via Sendelingsdrift pont (when it is not washed away), or the 'long' way around via Vioolsdrift. There is no crossing of the Orange river inbetween.

Hi tinadavey,

Its possible to do this route, but after Jan towards May it can be closed due to the Fish river in flood or the Orange river. I've added a link to Caracals TT showing pics of the pontoon. The shortest route is a 4x4 route, but alternatively you can drive to Vioolsdrift and then to Ausenkehr if you on your own in a single vehicle.

You will not be able to complete this route easily in one day and the best will be to overnight at Sendelingsdrift / Potjespram campsite (limited facilities). It took us about 4 hours to De Hoop from Sendelingsdrift to give you an idea of traveling time. You will require a 4x4 vehicle to enter as well.
