Stargazing in the ǀAi-ǀAis/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park

Straddling the border between South Africa and Namibia, The ǀAi-ǀAis/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park is a peace park formed formed in 2003 as the Namibian ǀAi-ǀAis Hot Springs Game Park and the South African Richtersveld National Park were joined. 

Boasting some of the most spectacular arid and desert mountain scenery in Southern Africa, the #TrekSouthAfrica team were fortunate enough to spend a few days in the ǀAi-ǀAis/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park, and were blown away by the beauty of the skies above them. Here are some of the best images of their stargazing experience in the ǀAi-ǀAis/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park, taken by Rudolph De Girardier and Alistair Daynes.
