Richtersveld weather in September

Unread post by Jonkers » Wed Aug 10, 2016 9:37 am

Hi
What kind of temperatures can I expect end of September in Richtersveld. What to take with me, do I still need fleece for the evening or is that a waste of space? I'm not camping and will only stay at the South African side of the park.

Hi Jonkers,

A very difficult question to answer! :wink:

September should be a very nice time to spend some time in Richtersveld, BUT night-time temperatures can be cold due to the coastal weather.

September temperatures should be max mid 20s and minimum 10 and less.

Berg wind conditions also play a huge roll in the weather. Right now Alexanderbay is experiencing Berg Wind conditions and day temps are mid 30s.

We spent some time in Port Nolloth in January. And we wore jackets the whole time, day and night.

Enjoy your trip and may you have a lovely time!!
