View of mountains from the top of Toon Kokerboomkloof, Richtersveld, Northern Cape province

Kokerboomkloof, from the Afrikaans word "kloof", meaning a deep ravine, is a location and campsite in Richtersveld National Park, characterized by massive boulders, spectacular views and exceptional quietness.

An international treaty, signed on 1 August 2003, incorporated the Hot Springs Game Park in Namibia and Richtersveld National Park in South Africa, resulting in the establishment of the Richtersveld Transfrontier National Park.

One of the main features of the combined park is the world’s second largest canyon – the Fish River Canyon. At Sendelingsdrift, on the South African side, a pontoon has been established to ferry people and vehicles across the Orange River. The pontoon has a carrying capacity of a 32-seater bus or two fully loaded double cab 4x4 vehicles.
