The attractions of the Northern Cape range from adventure activities to game viewing and hunting, from stunning scenery to a diversity of cultures… The Kalahari and Karoo regions are arid and dry yet so much more. Namaqualand features the dramatic Richtersveld, the spring flower phenomenon and the astronomical observatory near Sutherland. Augrabies is one of the largest waterfalls in the world, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is an eco-system of note, and on the Orange River near Upington is a huge co-operative winery.
Kimberley is a destination in itself. The capital city is best known for the diamonds that have been unearthed there, but it also has plenty of other fascinating stories to tell. Its location near the confluence of the Vaal and Orange Rivers speaks of the area’s geographical importance. And being on the N12 motorway linking the provinces of Gauteng and the Western Cape, Kimberley is a popular stop-over for both business travellers and holiday-makers preferring to stay at the better accommodation and hotels in the Northern Cape.
The Garden Court Kimberley is among the best-value Northern Cape accommodation establishments. It’s close to the airport as well as to the city centre. It’s just a few minutes’ drive from The Big Hole, the world’s largest man-made excavation that came about in the early days of Kimberley’s diamond mining history. With other tourist attractions including the Duggan-Cronin Gallery and McGregor Museum, the steam locomotives at the Beaconsfield Marshalling Yards and the numerous monuments and memorials.
