Richtersveld exits if pont/ferry is not working

Unread post by kennekam » Thu Feb 16, 2017 2:34 pm

We are planning to spend a week or so in the Richtersveld in March. The plan is to enter the park via Port Nolloth and Sendelingsdrif. I understand that we do not need the ferry for this leg. Then we aim to stay at Tatasberg for a few days. So far so good?

We then want to go to Kolmanskop. The original intent was to spend the last night at Sendelingdrif and then to enter Namibia from there. But if the ferry is not working, we need another exit. What options do we have? Any suggestions? We obviously have to cross the river somewhere...

Hi kennekam and a warm welcome to the forum :gflower:

Easiest option would then be to drive back to Alexander Bay and enter Namibia via the Alexander Bay / Oranjemund border post.

En joy the trip!! Richtersveld is a stunning park!!!
