South Africa Things To DoThings To Do in the Northern Cape

The mostly desert and semi-desert region that lies south of the Orange River has, contrary to expectations, some of the most incredible landscapes, a history rich in San rock engravings, Namaqualand daisies in spring, gloriously clear skies, starry nights and the Richtersveld National Park among its claims. When travelling in the Northern Cape, visit Kimberley's Big Hole, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park; go rafting on the Orange River, see the daisies or visit the Augrabies Falls National Park where moon rock, potholes and echo corner are apt names for beautiful places. And don’t miss the oddly shaped quiver trees in Springbok or the Orange River Wine cellars co-op in Upington.
