African Travel Concept

Northern Cape

If you love wide open spaces, wild flowers or Africa’s big cats, you’ll love South Africa’s Northern Cape Province. Among its many attractions, the Northern Cape is home to one of the world’s most important diamond mining towns - Alexander Bay, most impressive natural floral display, and famous black-maned lions. Most of the Northern Cape Province lies south of the mighty Orange River and comprises desert and semi-desert landscapes.

Although off the beaten track, there are many tourism highlights. During August and September, the area of Namaqualand is transformed into a brilliant carpet of wild flowers. This region is world-famous for its floral exuberance and photographic safaris to the area are very popular.

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is one of the largest nature conservation areas in Southern Africa and one of the largest protected natural ecosystems in the world. The park has a surface area of more than 2 million hectares and is one of the best places in the world to see rare black-maned lions. Once you have experienced its sheer size, clear skies, flamboyant sunsets, brilliant starry nights and incredible silence, you will never forget it.
