Adventure can be different things to different people. The dictionary states that it is the encountering of risks; hazardous and striking enterprise; a bold undertaking, in which hazards are to be encountered; a daring feat; a remarkable occurrence; a striking event; a stirring incident; as in the adventures of one’s life.
The Northern Cape’s vastness is an everlasting challenge to eco-adventurers who are keen to explore. Climatic and topographic extremes dominate a vast land of stark and varying contrasts. From its endless, flower-carpeted flatlands and scrub-covered plains to the jagged edges and convoluted folds of molten mountains, it is a land of haunting natural beauty. After scaling dizzying heights in searing temperatures with sweat-burned eyes, you feel mystery and wonder imbuing your every sense while gazing down on the broad, cooling waters snaking their way through the seemingly impregnable mountain moonscape.
Visitors are rewarded with experiences that press on their minds. The open, often unpopulated spaces of the Northern Cape call them back time and again to hike its rugged trails, shoot its turbulent rapids, fish its living rivers, sail its sapphire skies, explore its many back-roads, view its splendid game, revel in its unusual flora and explore the brooding chambers of its worked-out mines.
