South Africa's Northern Cape Routes, Parks & Reserves

Although the Northern Cape province of South Africa only forms part of the wonders that African Arid Experiences takes it's travellers to it is central to a lot of our tours. Most of the other destinations we cover, like Cape Town and surrounds and much of Namibia are well documented on other sites, so although we will be adding more information and images on these destinations we have chosen to start with the Northern Cape.

The semi-desert of South Africa’s Northern Cape has an allure like few other places on earth. Some may find it too rugged, barren, inhospitable and vast to traverse. However, for those who see beyond this rough veneer, there is an unfolding treasure-house of discoveries and experiences. An incredibly rich collection of rare plant species, unique desert animal life, unusual geological formations and night skies that contain more stars than you thought possible await you.
