Large expanses of open land and accommodation with ample interiors combine for a destination of great spaces and unique character. With space, comes silence. The beauty of the Northern Cape province lies in the tranquil setting created by vast open landscapes and the silence of space.
This is a place to come to switch off and disconnect, in order to reconnect – with yourself, the land, and those with whom you’re travelling. Home to the Kalahari, a trip to the Northern Cape offers the ultimate safari experience in South Africa.
- Space, privacy, silence and the chance to truly disconnect
- The ultimate safari experience in South Africa’s Kalahari
- Spectacular sunsets over vast landscapes
The immense, spacious plains of grass and acacia trees form the picturesque backdrop of far-flung towns and villages, old battlefields and epic adventures.
Being inland, the climate varies from blazing summer days spent poolside and on safari, to frosty winter evenings enjoying a bottle of red wine beside a cosy fire after a day spent exploring the land.
The wide open spaces and distant horizons are characterised by crisp dry air, flamboyant sunsets, enormous farms, and private reserves. Clear evening skies afford visitors some of the best stargazing opportunities in the country. Sleep out beneath the diamond dotted skies for a magical experience.
The semi-desert wilderness of the Kalahari is rich in wildlife which graze upon the sweet grasses and frequent waterholes. Here, the last of the nomadic San people live a traditional lifestyle alongside the herds of wild animals in harmony with the natural kingdom.
Spectacular grasslands and open plains meet ancient mountains where the original inhabitants of South Africa have left their mark through tribal paintings.
A playground of adventure, this is a space like no other.View other areas >
