The Northern Cape is the largest province in South Africa and have plenty to show the visitor. It is the most arid part of the country and therefore it can offer the visitor a unique experience that is nowhere else available in South Africa.
Visit Namaqualand during the flower season and you won'nt believe your own eyes when you enjoy the eye candy that this dry, inhospitable area can show you.
Or how about driving next to Orange River near Upington and enjoy some of the best South African Wines in the largest wine producing area of the country. While there, it is a must to see the mighty Orange River drop almost a hundred meters down at Augrabies Water Fall.
Then of cause, you must experience the Kalahari Desert and its red sand dunes. See game running wild between the dunes and camp out in the wild to see some of the most beautiful skies in the world.
Look at the oasis in the form of the Eye in Kuruman and try to think what this beautiful spring would have meant for an early explorer who travelled the country by ox-wagon.
Not to be forgotten is the big hole in Kimberley, where the Diamond mining industry had its origin. Or what about visiting the Battlefields from the Anglo-Boer War?
Can you believe that this now dry, hot part of the country was once covered with ice? The evidence can be seen at places like Nooitgedacht where glacial paving are exposed. While there, enjoy the art of the people who inhabited this part of the country thousands of years ago.
The northern Cape surely is one destination in South Africa that is not to be missed.
