Northern Cape Tours

The Northern Cape is home to various desert and semi-desert regions, including the Kalahari Desert, Nama Karoo, Succulent Karoo and the Sandveld along the barren West Coast. The main attractions are the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Augrabies Falls National Park, Mokala National Park, Namaqualand and Namaqua National Park, Diamond Coast, Witsand Nature Reserve, the ‘Diamond City’ Kimberley, the world renowned Sutherland Observatory and the lush green Orange River Valley surrounded by barren semi-desert landscape.

The Northern Cape also hosts South Africa’s only mountain desert park, the Richtersveld National Park, which is part of the Ai-Ais – Richtersveld Transfrontier Park with Namibia and the Richtersveld Conservancy; recently declared a world heritage site.

Uncountable surprises awaits the visitor from the previous restricted Diamond Coast in the west, through the only arid bio-diversity hotspot in the world, the Namaqualand, to the vast plains of the Karoo, dotted with flat topped koppies (hills), in the south, to the ‘Diamond Capital, of South Africa, Kimberley in the east. Enjoy unforgettable game drives, stargazing, campfire dinners, wine tasting at the 2nd largest co-operative wine cellar in the world, visit Private Game Reserves, remote communities and the last remaining San tribe in South Africa, the Khomani. Many of these destinations can only be reached on 4x4 trails. The variety of these unique ecosystems are better to be experienced with a personalized and knowledgeable guide, who can bring out the best these areas have to offer.
