Northern Cape Travel Guide

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

Olifantshoek comment - It was only a stay over but I think it is in a fantastic part of the so called "green Kalahari"!

Belgravia Suburb of Kimberley

Old world charm. - A lot of beautiful historic buildings. Close to almost everything in Kimberley.

Kamieskroon Town of Namaqualand

Not in November - I am guessing this is a destination when the flowers are in bloom. we stayed one night in November and it was like a ghost town with nothing open, even the hotel was closed. probably a different experience in the season.

Upington Town of Green Kalahari

The roads were in relatively good repair, the streets clean, parks well maintained, and overall I was extremely impressed. It looks as if it would be worth a longer visit, and a nice place to live and bring up a family.
