Unique flavour and flair

Think ancient Africa and modern-day convenience. These two aspects make the Northern Cape a unique travel destination, for business travellers. The province offers settings for events, meetings, conferences and weddings, with modern technology and hi-tech facilities.

Unforgettable, enriching experiences

The Northern Cape offers visitors an enriching life experience, whether stargazing in Sutherland, hunting for fossils in the Karoo or searching for San rock art deep in the caves of the Diamond Fields. So when your business is done, make some time to explore unforgettable sites.

Rich cultural encounters

Come meet the oldest human inhabitants of Africa, the San, or the indigenous Setswana and Nama people, and learn at the hands of these remarkable communities. Who says learning comes only from books?

Value for luxury

We offer excellent exchange rates for visitors, while our facilities, activities and service are of outstanding value – so you can do more for your money. We call it value for luxury.

Make a difference with ubuntu

Ubuntu is a philosophy that entails the belief of a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. For us this translates into a belief that each visitor makes a difference, whether it is through bookings that create tourism jobs, or by physically engaging with our communities through social upliftment initiatives.

Great weather

Think sunshine, for much of the year. Our great weather allows visitors to enjoy the outdoors through a range of activities – massages under open skies, river rafting, horseback riding, game viewing, or a round of golf followed by a braai (barbecue) after a long day of meetings.

Leading adventure destination

The Northern Cape is arguably one of the best adventure destinations in Southern Africa. Go hiking on one of many trails. How about a hot-air balloon ride or traversing the rapids of the mighty Orange River in a kayak? We give new meaning to the term bleasure!

​Natural beauty and wildlife

The province's natural beauty and resources makes it an ideal location for a bleasure getaway

If you find inspiration from nature, then the Northern Cape’s the perfect place for you. We are home to two Unesco World Heritage Sites (Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape and the ǂKhomani Cultural Landscape) and two transfrontier parks (the Kgalagadi and the |Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld). 

A firm favourite for incentives

The province is a firm favourite with incentive groups. We go out of our way to ensure incentive groups have an unforgettable, life-enriching trip.

Special occasions, weddings and honeymoons

Think unspoiled nature and breathtaking scenery such as deserts, rivers, beaches, mountains and forests that can all provide the perfect backdrop for your dream wedding. The province is fast becoming one of the country’s most desirable and sought-after wedding and honeymoon destinations.
