Richtersveld under new management

Date: 2016-02-05


There is a new face that will be greeting you the next time you visit the |Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. In December 2015 a new manager took over the driver seat from Nick de Goede after the latter was transferred to Camdeboo National Park in the Graaff-Reinett area.

Nick's successor is Brent Whittington from the Garden Route National Park. Brent is a pure Englishman, which is a little strange for this predominantly Afrikaans community. Nevertheless, his appointment was driven and fully supported by the Richtersveld Community Management Committee (RCMC). Brent, his wife, Madel, and their two children have already settled in well and the family is absolutely in love with the pristine beauty of the Richtersveld which they now call home.

Brent says with the help of the ARTP team he will continue to support and help improve events like the Desert Knights, Wild Run and the Desert Kayak Trail which takes place annually in the park. He believes the Richtersveld has unlimited potential and would like to expand the mountain bike routes and hiking trails to world class quality, as adventure sport is the biggest attraction to this desolated area. “Nick and his team have done an excellent job and I will continue to build on the solid foundation of partnerships with internal and external stakeholders and thus lead the Richtersveld to a new chapter in its history,” he said.

The Arid Regional Management Team is very excited to welcome Brent in our midst. His expertise and enthusiasm will be well utilised in this formidable team.
