Locality type:Province


This province was created in 1994 when the old Cape of Good Hope province was split up. The Northern Cape province is the largest and most sparsely populated province in South Africa, its size is comparable with the state of Montana and Germany. Kimberley is the capital, well known for the diamond rush which started 1869. The Orange River flows through the province and forms the border with the Free State province in the south-east and with Namibia in the north-west. The river is also known for the orange to red hematite included quartz crystals that have emerged since the millennium. The north of the province is primarily Kalahari Desert a semi-arid savannah with a thick layer of red sand dominating the landscape. The Northern Cape province reflects a rich, mainly Stone Age, archaeological heritage, with cave sites and a wealth of rock art sites. In the north-eastern parts of the province there are sites attributable to the Iron Age. The Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in 2007. The Province is divided into 5 districts.
