Northern Cape Travel Guide

The Northern Cape is South Africa's biggest and least densely populated province.

Worth a visit - We found the museums very informative and would return. People are friendly and helpful as other reviewers have already stated.

Askham Town of Green Kalahari

Good for coffee break - Not much there except for a lovely place called Diamond T which is great for breakfast, lunch or just a coffee break on the way to Kgalagadi.

Prieska Town of Upper Karoo

Good stopover - Quite a nice little town although we were disappointed by all the rubbish lying around ESP broken glass on top of the Koppie overlooking the town. Wouldn't stay there for more than an overnight stop.

Kathu Town of Green Kalahari

Town Under The Trees - Busy little town with lovely sport fields and a well maintained swimming pool. Book a tour of the iron ore mine for an interesting day outing.

Jan Kempdorp Town of Diamond Fields

Jan Kempdorp - Quiet town and going at its own pace, where everyone still greets everyone. Das Loch serves the best pizza ever. Amazing golf course, everything is easy to find and we had an amazing weekend. Frantelle guesthouse was an excellent choice.
