Something to eat



The Northern Cape is scattered with diverse culture, rich frontier history and activities to suit every adrenaline junkie’s taste. From hiking and 4×4 adventures to gamespotting in unique parks, travellers of all persuasions will unearth a hidden gem here amongst some of themost unique flora in the world. The Orange River runs through the Northern Cape, bringing life and painting the arid landscape with rich green belts, creating oases and havens for birdlife and other animals. The Kalahari Desert’s shifting red sands that once rippled and moved are now mostly stable and home to hundreds of diverse species of flora and fauna.
The famous Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park extends across much of the Kalahari Desert and is a popular attraction for those looking for an escape into the silence of a wide horizons and open spaces interrupted only by the cry of the African fish eagle or roar of a Kalahari Lion.
Photographers, writers and storytellers have all been inspired by the vast and sweeping beauty of the Northern Cape with its big, blue skies, the cascading Augrabies Falls, mountainous desert of the Richtersveld and star-scattered skies
