Northern Cape


The Northern Cape is a place of vast, arid plains, spectacular scenery and big sky. It is mostly desert or semi-desert – but make no mistake, it has plenty to offer. It is home to one of the world’s most spectacular natural floral displays: each year during spring, the area of Namaqualand is transformed into a vibrant carpet of colour by millions of blooming wildflowers.
