Lekkersing is nestled in the hills of the
Richtersveld, the faulted, age-old lava landscape of rugged
mountain ranges interspersed by wide plains. Temperatures
up to 53 degrees Celsius have been measured in this area,
but the trees at Koersdap shelter you from the harshest sunshine.
Discover how flagstones and tombstones are
cut out of quartzite at the mine, or explore the Skurwehoog
caves, 30 km from Lekkersing on the road to Kuboes. If you
are interested in local craft, the community workgroup 'Rusoord'
will show you how to make 'riempie' chairs, 'velskoene', 'matjies'
huts, dresses and 'kappies'.
Halfway between Lekkersing and Eksteenfontein
is Kalkfontein, a spiritual retreat offering outdoor recreation
and adventure. Hiking trails and mountain biking are as breathtaking
in this dry area as horse rides and donkey-carting. These
activities can all be arranged for you.
The small town of Lekkersing is nestled
in the hills of the Richtersveld, 50 km from Eksteenfontein
and 70 km from Kuboes. It can also be accessed from the road
(R382) to Port Nolloth.
