Northern Cape Travel Guide

The Northern Cape is South Africa's biggest and least densely populated province. Consisting mostly of Karoo semi-desert and Kalahari thirstland, it's all about wide open spaces, big skies and immense distances. But it's not all drab and dusty by any means.

Richmond - Northern Cape Town of Upper Karoo

Richmond: Northern Cape - The town has nothing much to offer, and is somewhat delapidated. A useful halfway stop between Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Colesberg Town of Upper Karoo

Colesberg - A great place to visit if you want to experience the countryside and find inner peace.

Port Nolloth Town of Namaqualand

Port Nolloth - A lovely quite place. People are very friendly. Lovely meals at Vespetti. They need to license a.s.ap., but we were allowed to take our own, just paid sur charge.

Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Great small town to visit any time of the year - Sutherland is known as being the coldest place in South Africa but can be very hot during the day in summer. Peaceful vistas, no air or light pollution and a rural feel bring back the longings for a time gone by. Local sheep graze in fields adjacent to the lower town. whilst a wide Main road and a very historical church make Sutherland a sleepy Karoo town. The proximity of SALT and the excellent tours they offer bring in many visitors each year.

Van Zylsrus Town of Kalahari Region

Go with an open mind - Plenty of drunks, but still very entertaining to watch them
