About the Northern Cape
The Northern Cape is South Africa's largest province and a must-see destination, whether you prefer the ocean, the desert, the bush or quirky towns rich in history and culture.
The Karoo can create a lifetime of memories
Vast, open landscapes dotted with hills, or koppies, with characteristic flat tops. Arid veld and cloudless blue skies. Burning heat in summer. Icy nights in winter. Small-town hospitality. Wildlife. And astonishingly clear night skies for stargazing.
The Karoo is all this – and more.

The tourism sector contributed 2.9% to South Africa's gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016, according to Statistics South Africa’s annual Tourism Satellite Account for South Africa report.
