The small town of Lekkersing lies nestled in the hills of the Richtersveld, a faulted, age-old lava landscape of rugged mountain ranges, interspersed with wide open plains. Temperatures as high as 53 degrees Celsius have been recorded in this area!

Lekkersing is 50km from Eksteenfontein and 70km from Kuboes and can be accessed from the R382 between Steinkopf and Port Nolloth.

You can explore the Skurwehoog caves, 30 km from Lekkersing on the road to Kuboes or for those who are interested in local craft, the community workgroup 'Rusoord' will show you how to make 'riempie chairs', 'velskoene', 'matjies' hats, dresses and 'kappies'.

At the mine you can discover how flagstones and tombstones are cut out of quartzite.
