The Northern Cape Province is South Africa’s largest province, but the most sparsely populated. The Orange River is the lifeblood of the province, making possible a thriving agricultural sector along its banks. Grapes and dates are some of the products that are grown in the Northern Cape of South Africa, while the region is also a large cotton producer.

The capital of the Northern Cape Province, as well as the world’s “Diamond Capital” is Kimberley. This town saw one of the biggest diamond rushes in history, when diamonds were discovered here in the 1870s. Visit the famous Big Hole, which was created when thousands of frantic men searched for riches, removing 22,5 million ton of soil (and 3 million ton of diamonds) with little more than picks, shovels and wheelbarrows.

Soon after the first rains of the early Spring fall, the Namaqualand region of the Northern Cape Province is transformed into a patchwork of colour. This is when millions of flowers grow from the arid soil, making the landscape a dream come true for every photographer and artist. You can also find many relics of the early Bushmen inhabitants, such as rock paintings, in the Namaqualand region of the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The region also contains many fossils.

The Northern Cape Province is also home to a plethora of nature reserves. The world-famous Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is the first park of its nature in Africa and is 250 km from Upington in the Northern Cape Province. The Tswalu Kalahari Reserve is privately owned and houses many species of animals, birds and flora. Listen to the dunes in the Witsand Nature Reserve – when these dunes are disturbed, they emit a strange, roaring sound (almost like something out of a Steven King thriller!). The Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape in the Northern Cape Province was recently added to the list of World Heritage Sites. It is managed by the Nama people, descendants of the original Khoi inhabitants and is a place of strange, yet serene, natural beauty.
