Northern Cape

South Africa

DESTINATIONS > Africa > South Africa > Northern Cape

Stretching from The Atlantic Coast in the west to almost the centre of the country and from the deserts of the Great Karoo in the south to the borders with Namibia and Botswana in the north, South Africa’s Northern Cape is the largest of its 9 provinces by size, although by far the smallest in terms of population.

Although it is relatively undeveloped in terms of tourism, it does boast a number of unique attractions, including the collaborative Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park which crosses in to Botswana, the mighty Augrabies Falls and some charming frontier towns where the pace of life is altogether much slower.

This is a destination for those who know South Africa well and are looking for something very different from their trip. Wildlife can be spotted, although it is limited, so trips here focus on the amazing scenery and unique cultures of this remote but beautiful part of the country.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
