The largest province in South Africa
Stretching from the West Coast across to Kimberley on the Free State border, this is the largest province in South Africa. And it’s not only diamonds that are found in profusion here. There are numerous places of stark natural beauty such as the Kgalagadi National Park, the Augrabies Falls, Namaqualand and the Richtersveld.
The Orange River
Life here is dominated by the mighty Orange River. Moody, sullen and mysterious, it brings life to this desert area. Sometimes the river scarcely flows, at other times it floods. But it’s a river of water, as opposed to the rivers of sand that surround it.
