4x4 Trails and challenges
Take rugged mountains, endless flatlands and undulating dunes. Add to this diverse scenery, stunning plantlife and plentiful game and you have a recipe that will please all 4x4 eco-adventurers. But what really separates the trails of the Northern Cape from the rest is the seemingly infinite open spaces, mostly devoid of people.
The sun fires dawnís crisp skies with gold. The khaki, Karoo scrub burnished by what will shortly become a blistering sun stretches to every horizon. In silent camaraderie, you and your guide track the gemsbok spoor etched into the bronzed earth by the morningís early shadow.
Much More than Flowers
Between July and September Namakwa sheds its drab facade and showers the world with flowers of every hue. Nature sheds any pretence at barren aridity and runs riot with tones and rainbow hues of rich and splendid brilliance.
The Eye of Kuruman
The Eye is a natural fountain delivering approximately 20-30 million litres of crystal clear water daily, which supplies Kurumanís domestic water, feeds the Kuruman River and spills yet more water into two 7km irrigation canals.
The Vaalharts Valley
This beautiful yet little known valley is only one hourís drive north of Kimberley. The surrounds are like a breath of fresh air with the lush green farmlands highlighted from the usual yellows and browns of the nearby countryside. Two mighty rivers, the Vaal and the Harts, feed an intricate irrigation scheme that supports more than 1 250 high production agricultural farms.
