South Africa, Lesotho & Swaziland - Northern Cape (PDF Chapter)
This is the Northern Cape chapter from Lonely Planet’s South Africa, Lesotho & Swazi-land guidebook.
The Northern Cape is South Africa’s last great frontier - raw, elemental land, where gnarly camel-thorn trees break the boundless horizons. Yet it abounds with instances of rejuvenating beauty: the Green Kalahari vineyards, epic Augrabies Falls and red Kalahari sands shimmering with grasses.
