Getting to Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park

3 reviews

Driving to Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park

As this park straddles two countries, Namibia and South Africa, it is possible to drive to this park from either side. If driving from Cape Town, the drive will take you a little over seven hours in normal conditions. The drive from Windhoek is slightly shorter, at around 6.5 hours.

 

Domestic flights to Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park

Air Namibia currently offers four flights per week to nearby Oranjemund. The flight is about 70 minutes in duration. From there, you can hire a car and drive around another 70 minutes to reach the Namibia side entrance. 

On the South African side, just across the border, is another air strip in Alexander Bay, where charter flights can land.
