Description [ correction ]

The Ai-Ais National Park and the Richtersveld Park in South Africa form part of a new Transfrontier Park, with the Orange River providing a habitat for hundreds of bird species. One of the highlights of this park is the Fish River Canyon that is well known for its five-day 80km hiking trail. Ai-Ais means 'very hot water' in the Nama language and refers to the hot springs at the Ai-Ais Resort. Other attractions are the Gondwana Canyon Park, The Naute Recreational Park at the Naute Dam as well as the Brukkaros Crater. All visitors need to pay a conservation fee in order to visit the parks.
