The Richtersveld Community Conservancy

The Richtersveld Community Conservancy borders on the south of the Richtersveld National Park in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The Conservancy, an inland mountain desert, is owned and managed by the local people. Popular with tourists and 4X4 drivers who like to get away from it all the area is also rich in minerals and a unique fauna and flora.

Soetgat is an area not far out of Eksteenfontein where herder Koos Joseph lives with his wife Sarah in a small camp which boasts a couple of traditional Matjieshuts and more 'modern' structures.Koos has about a hundred sheep and goats he farms with in the Conservancy. The river and flowers show signs of recent and good rains. The flowers are an annual event if the rains are on time. 2007. Photo: © John Hogg/World Bank
