The Northern Cape Province of South Africa The Northern Cape Province of South Africa is a vast and deceptively arid area – ‘deceptively’, as the varied semi-arid to arid landscapes support an astonishing biodiversity in a variety of biomes that range from sheep dotted Karoo ‘veld’ to the deep red dunes of the Kalahari ‘desert’.
