The Richtersveld Local Municipality is located in the Namakwa District in Northern Cape. It is a unique landscape surrounded by a variety of contrasts. In Port Nolloth youll find the ocean, from a distance it looks like a glowing body that lies stretched out before you. At AlexanderBay the Orange River spews out its last waters. At Lekkersing and Eksteenfontein theres neither river nor ocean, but underground water that is a little brackish. Rainfall is no familiar face to this area and water is a scarce commodity. We can genuinely say that the Richtersveld is a Conservation area. Not only is the geographical area unique, but also its people, which is why this area must manage its resources in an optimal manner.read more »
