Your Guide to the Drakensberg and Natal Midlands

Northern Province - South Africa

The Northern Province of South Africa reflects the quintessence of untamed Africa - with ancient baobabs guarding vast expanses of mountains and bushveld. The Northern Province is a land of dramatic contrasts characterised by hot savannah plains and mist-clad mountains; age-old indigenous forests and cycads alongside latter-day plantations; ancient mountain fortresses and the luxury of contemporary infrastructure and modern-day facilities.

Northern Province South Africa - A bushcamp fire sideSteeped in history, the Northern Province celebrates a rich cultural heritage and at many archaeological sites the mysteries of the past and ancient peoples are still being unearthed. The present tranquillity of the province belies a turbulent past, to which many monuments and museums attest.

Much of the land of the Northern Province, particularly in the Kruger National Park and other game and nature reserves, is unspoilt providing sanctuary to large numbers of game. And for those who wish to experience the thrill of Africa in a more tangible manner, wilderness areas and trails, hunting safaris and hikes may provide the solution.

The four regions of the Northern Province represent a microcosm of varied and interesting cultures, growing industries and an expanding tourism industry. Each region is unique, each worth a visit.

The beauty and infinite variety of the Northern Province will not only delight all who visit, but will entice visitors back again and again.
