The Northern Cape is a sparsely populated province in South Africa.
The province boasts rustic yet tranquil as it takes up some the Kalahari Desert undertones. Its major towns are Kimberley, a diamond mining region and on the Greater Karoo you find De Aar and Colesberg which serve as major transport links to Johannesburg, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Northern Cape is also home to the Namaqualand which stretches to the West Coast, a truly beautiful area with an inviting charm of both colorful hues of flowers and at the happy faces of the Nama people.

At the Gariep River Basin, Vaal River, Augrabies Falls and many other channels, water sport junkies will sure enjoy every existing water activity.
