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. The Orange River, which flows through... Read more

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.

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

Kimberley Town of Diamond Fields

Kimberley - We briefly visited Kimberley and were surprised at how much it has changed. We found on the Internet some game parks that we would want to explore on another occasion. We found that not enough is published on the main Internet site for Kimberley.

Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Middle of Nowhere - Centre of the Universe - Off season Sutherland is quiet and a long way from anywhere. A charming Karoo town with an attractive church, Boer War cemetery and some genuinely good restaurants. Sleepy is the word. Just up the hill is the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) an astronomical facility so famous that it attracts scientists and visitors from all over the World to gaze into the vast vault of Space. Awesome is the word.

Augrabies Town of Green Kalahari

Augrabies in flood - A wondrous place to visit with the water roaring down... I am glad we decided to take the 9 hour drive to see the river in flood. A once a lifetime experience.
