The perilous 1,000-mile journey to save Africa’s endangered black rhinos
28 October 2022
From 9 – 14 October 2011, representatives from the /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park, Namibia Wildlife Resorts, South African National Parks, Boundless Southern Africa and Peace Parks Foundation, along with tour operators, explored potential routes for the planned Desert Knights Tour.
The envisioned Tour will be a four-day mountain biking and river rafting event that will take place on both sides of the Orange River in the picturesque /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park.
Although not without challenges, the undertaking proved to be productive. Excellent input was received from all participants, highlighting the spirit of cooperation shared by the two countries as they work together to conserve the unique wilderness of the Transfrontier Park.
Once launched, the Desert Knights Tour will make it possible for visitors to enjoy an extraordinary cross-border experience.
