The Northern Cape province, a seemingly vast barren landscape, is perhaps one of the least explored regions of South Africa and remains, for the serious adventurer, an everlasting challenge. This landscape is periodically plagued by drought and scorching sunshine yet it has been astonishingly blessed with some of the most dramatic displays of natural beauty. Nowhere is this more visible than in Namaqualand, one of the six floral kingdoms of the world. In spring, the plains burst into flower creating a breathtaking carpet of brilliant colour. The discovery of an 83-carat 'Star of South Africa' marked the beginning of the world's greatest diamond rush and in Kimberley, resulted in what was to become known as the 'Big Hole', the largest hand-dug excavation in the world.
