- Northern Cape
Eksteenfontein lies in a hot, dry semi-desert region of the Richtersveld, 50km from Lekkersing and 80km from Kuboes. It is the gateway to the vast wilderness of the Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the home to endemic succulents and desert wildlife.
By booking a few days in advance the women of Eksteenfontein, or !Obes, as they are called in Nama, will bake delicious fresh bread and cook a tasty traditional meal for you.
Riempie chairs are produced locally and make a great souvenir or gift and one can buy T-Shirts printed with a halfmens, bokkie or other memorabilia at the textile printing centre.
