The Northern Cape is home to some of the country’s most sought after tourist spots. Here are some facts about the province you should know before you plan a visit:
It is the biggest province in South Africa
Northern Cape is equivalent to the size of Germany and takes up nearly a third of South Africa. Ironically, it has one of the smallest populations in the country, with a recorded 1, 1 million people, which is around 2.3 percent of the country’s population.
Northern Cape borders two African countries, Namibia in Karas and Hardap and Botswana in Kgalagadi. In South Africa, it shares a border with the North West, Free State, Eastern Cape and Western Cape.
National treasure, literally.
