Richterveld


Was surfing the net looking for information about the Richtersveld, also World heritage site.

 This tree is called the "Halfmens", half-human. From a distance these trees look like people.


Some idea of the rugged and arid conditions in the Richtersveld.


This is the Augrabies waterfalls several hundred kilometres up-stream of the Richtersveld on the Orange river which flows throw the Richtersveld. Now click on this link http://blog.africabespoke.com/augrabies-falls-in-flood-orange-river to see some amazing photos of last years flood. The photo above is the falls in a normal rain year 2008. The picture above was taken from the viewing platform that you see in the first picture when you go to the link.
