A typical Northern Cape scene
The Northern Cape  is situated in the north-west corner of South Africa. Although it is the largest of the nine provinces (361,000 sq km) it has the smallest population (900,000).
Other nature reserves
Originally the Northern Cape was part of what used to be known as the Cape Province. However, after the 1994 elections the old provincial boundaries were redrawn, and the Cape Province was split into the Northern Cape, the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape Provinces.
The Northern Cape is a dry and sparsely populated region, and much of it is semi-desert. Nevertheless, it has a beauty of its own and is a popular destination for South African and international tourists alike.
The Northern Cape Province is served by a number of excellent national roads.
Both Upington Airport and Kimberley Airport have flights to some of the major cities in South Africa, operated by South African Airways.
