The Northern Cape is known for it’s semi desert landscapes, San Rock art galleries and diamond diggings. The famous Augrabies Falls National Park is located at the point where the Orange River thunders into a ravine, dropping into a huge pool below, creating the sixth largest waterfall in the world.
The Wild Flowers of Namaqualand are one of the highlights of the Northern Cape.
These miracles of nature explode into a display of intense colour just after the first rains of the season.
Rich in minerals, most of South Africa’s diamond mines are situated in Kimberley, home
to the largest man made hole in the world, the diamond mine known as “The Big Hole”.
Upington is the largest town near the Augrabies Falls National Park, gateway to many natural wonders like the Fish River Canyon, Ai Ais Spa and the Spitskop Nature Reserve.
