What the Northern Cape lacks in people, it gains in the valuable natural resource, particularly diamonds. These are found in the east of the province at Kimberley and the extreme west of Alexander Bay. Tutwa is situated in a region referred to as the Green Kalahari.
Essentially a scenic region where Klipspringer and Kokerboom (quiver trees) stand in stark silhouette against the African sky, silent sentinels in a strangely unique environment where only those who have been able to adapt, have survived.
Today the Northern Cape is known largely for its annual display of wild flowers, a popular tourist attraction bringing thousands of visitors to this magnificent region to enjoy this annual spectacle.
The Northern Cape is also a popular destination for adventure enthusiasts and travelers alike. Renowned for fantastic and diverse adventure activities encompassing both the Orange River and the desert regions, it's not surprising that the Northern Cape has claimed its spot as South Africa's premier incentive and corporate travel destination.
