TThe Northern Cape is remote, vast and an unspoilt area of the country. The beautiful spring flower spectacle that transforms a semi-desert landscape, the mighty Augrabies and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, famous for its lions, are all worth exploring for the perfect Sho’t Left.

When last did you take a road trip, a carefree excursion with friends and family to enjoy the sights and sounds of the countryside? Crank up the iPod and get your padkos ready, there is nothing like exploring the national parks and sights of the majestic Northern Cape.

It’s your country, enjoy it!

Visit the flowers

RRoadtripping is the best way to see the Wildflower Route in the Northern Cape, a vision of flowers that will colour your imagination for the rest of your days. If you are a lover of nature and outdoor activities, then a visit to see the flowers of South Africa is a must.

One of the most popular places is Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm near the bulb capital of Nieuwoudtville, which is about four hours from Cape Town. The best time to go is in spring, which is in August and early September.

MMake your way to the Augrabies Waterfalls, situated 120km to the west of Upington in the Northern Cape. It forms part of the Augrabies Falls National Park, which is rich with brilliant and beautiful plant and animal life.

The area of Augrabies is the start of a trip down the Orange River where canoeing, rafting and fly-fishing are just three adventure opportunities offered along the 2200km-long Orange River which is South Africa's longest. Serious outdoor enthusiasts can take guided tours that involve sleeping under the stars for several nights while exploring the river and enjoying its surrounds during the day.

Linger longer and drive further up to the desert…

IIf you think the desert is bland, you’ve obviously never been to the Kalahari. It’s a magical place where dry landscapes and red dunes provide the backdrop to a singularly unique experience, one that can only be found in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

End your trip …

Stargazing - on a hilltop outside the Karoo hamlet of Sutherland, the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) focusses its giant African eye on our universe. You cannot visit the Northern Cape without going on a stargazing safari!

SStopovers for authentic South African hospitality can be enjoyed with some farm stays

A farm stay in the Northern Cape is like nowhere else on earth. It’s both remote and hard to farm successfully here, but despite these challenges, the people of the Northern Cape are wonderfully friendly and hospitable. In a wild and desolate way, it is perhaps South Africa's most wild and memorable province.
