Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park straddles the border between Namibia and South Africa.

Understand[edit]

Landscape in Richtersfeld National Park

The immense Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park was formed when the Richtersveld National Park in South Africa was joined with the |Ai-|Ais Hot Springs Game Park in Namibia. It contains the Fish River Canyon Park. The South African part is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The park is one of the few places where the Nama, a pastoral semi-nomadic tribe still survive. They speak the Nama language and move with their seasons and are known for living in beehive-shaped huts known as haru oms, made of reeds.
