Northern Cape Nature Reserves in South Africa offer a range of accommodation options, activities in nature, desert-adapted wildlife and beautiful scenery.

From the gently undulating hills of Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, surrounded by red dunes and large open grasslands alive with wildlife, to the winding Orange River that passes through Augrabies Falls National Park, Northern Cape nature reserves and national parks are filled with adventure!

For a truly exceptional experience, hike through Namaqua National Park or perhaps venture into the limitless lengths of Tankwa Karoo National Park.

If you are looking for a luxury experience, Tswalu Kalahari Reserve is a family-friendly private game reserve in the Kalahari, Northern Cape where you can see black-maned Kalahari lions and adorable meerkats. Activities include rock art sites, hot air ballooning, horse riding, stargazing, game drives and sleep-outs in the Kalahari dunes.

Northern Cape nature reserves will delight nature enthusiasts given the abundance of adventurous and unique things to see and do in each of these spectacular locations.
