Mountains, plains and valleys
Northern Cape hospitality is legendary, and the gamut of destinations here at the edge of Namaqualand never disappoints. Loeriesfontein and the world’s best windmill museum await down the dusty road, with Hantamland unfolding into the Karoo’s far-flung reaches. Unique farm stays, quirky dorps, unknown nature reserves, cool conservancies, and far-out rural delights are a dime a dozen in the Knersvlakte. Here, Mzansi majestically morphs around every other corner, and you never know what magic awaits you around the next.
The Cederberg landscape has a raw dramatic beauty with its towering mountains, and brilliant purple and orange sunsets laden with a scent of orange blossom in the spring. The coastline with perfect waves for surfing offers open-air restaurants serving only the best of local seafood and has an abundance of bird life to be spotted.
