LEISURELY PURSUITS IN THE NORTHERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA

6|

Majestically stretching over 360 000 square kilometres from the world-renowned Kalahari desert in the North to the arid plains of the Karoo in the South, the Northern Cape Province of South Africa offers visitors an unforgettable holiday experience. The vast open spaces of South Africa’s largest province make the Northern Cape the ideal destination for any traveler. The largest province within South Africa has splendid natural beauty with breathtaking variety, a fascinating cultural mix, warm hospitality and some of the world’s greatest experiences on offer.

TEN TANTALISING REASONS TO CHOOSE THE NORTHERN CAPE AS A LEISURE DESTINATION:

1.

Unique flavor and flair

The Northern Cape is a truly remarkable holiday destination. Explore the unique flavor of the province with its unique combination of ancient Africa with an overlay of confident democracy. Walk barefoot on the land of the ancestors, proud of its roots and enthusiastic about the future, creating, solving challenges and greeting the world with a wide, warm smile.

2.

Unforgettable, enriching experiences

Whether you are stargazing in Sutherland, hunting for fossils in the Karoo, searching for San rock art deep in the caves of the Diamond Fields, experiencing the world’s richest floral offering in Namakwa, camping deep in the bush surrounded by wildlife and the famed black-maned lion of the Green Kalahari, or kayaking down the mighty Orange River, the Northern Cape is more than an adventure, it’s an enriching life experience...

3.

The inherent warm hospitality of the people of the Northern Cape makes visitors feel like celebrities when they come to this vast province.

Not only will you have an excellent rate of exchange, but our facilities, activities and service equal outstanding value – so you can do more for your money. We call it value for luxury.

5.

Make a difference with ubuntu

The successful hosting of the 2011 Maloof Money Cup World Skateboarding Championships was the Northern Cape’s ubuntu on a grand scale. The entire province pulled together to put on a mega-event - from building a world-class skateboarding plaza to making the participants and fans from around the world feel welcome and showing their hospitality and deeplyfelt patriotism to the world. Looking after the collective is looking after the self. This is something that every visitor can learn when coming here and making a difference, whether it’s bookings creating tourism jobs or whether it’s physically making a difference in our communities and to our wildlife by supporting conservation and social upliftment initiatives.

6.

7.

Leading adventure destination

the mighty Orange River in a kayak or leaping off a mountain or waterfall. No matter the skill, inclination or interest, there is an adventure to thrill all. Combined with our beautiful weather and spectacular scenery, it’s a heady mix!

Visitors are hard-pressed to choose between our UNESCO World Heritage Site and two Transfrontier Parks, the Kgalagadi and the |Ai-| Ais Richtersveld with its red and golden sand dunes. Share the intimate bush knowledge of a Nama or San Bushmen guide/tracker. The Northern Cape’s natural beauty is enhanced by its enigmatic wildlife. Whether its meerkats or gemsbok, watching wild animals at close range is something truly unforgettable. There are walking, horseback, 4x4, Little Five, Shy Five, and many more safaris to incorporate in your trip.

9.

The distinct cultural groups that make up the Northern Cape are as rich as the country’s history. Meet the oldest human inhabitants of Africa, the San Bushmen, at Riemvasmaak, the Setswana and Nama in Namakwa and Diamond Fields. Visitors to the Northern Cape have ample chance to immerse themselves in these unique cultures through exploring cultural villages and arts and crafts markets, indulging in local cuisine at township restaurants, watching traditional dances and ceremonies, listening to real stories at interactive museums and talking to our people, who are willing to teach their customs and phrases to international guests. It’s the best way to experience the

heartbeat of the province and to take a bit of the Northern Cape with them when they leave.
