  THE NORTHERN CAPE'S KALAHARI  

KALAHARI

Its shimmering spaces spread out beneath an unrelenting, hot and metallic sky which seduces the visitors and those living in its towns and villages. With a disarming lack of pretention hiding an embarrassing wealth of natural and mineral riches for between the simple sweep of its horizon and the clean spherical arc of its deep blue sky. Beneath the clean sweep of our uncluttered horizon not far beneath the Kalahari 's great blanket of red sands hide a treasure trove of iron, manganese and other precious ores. In town like Black Rock, Hotazel and Dingleton the mechanical behemoths will continue to harvest nature's mineral wealth for decades to come.
Mines – Hotazel & Black Rock
Two mining towns within 25km of each other are both products of the exploration and mining of manganese ore.
Kumba Recourses – Sishen Iron Ore Mine (Kathu)
One of the 5 largest open-cast iron ore mines in the world.
The Eye – Kuruman
Flowing from an amazing dolomite spring as strongly and as steadily as if the rock had been struck by Moses, the beautiful Eye of Kuruman feeds forest of majestically tall camel thorn trees silhouetted against the seamless horizon of the great, mystical and miraculous Kalahari Desert.
Wonderwerk Cave – Kuruman
Wonderwerk Cave is a 140 metre long cave dating back some 800 000 years. Research revealed a long record of human and environmental history.
KgalagadiTransfrontier Park – Kalahari Gemsbok National Park
The Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa was proclaimed in 1931 mainly to protect the migrating game, especially the Gemsbok. Togehter with the adjacent Gemsbok National Park in Botswana this park comprises an area of over 3,6 million hectares one of very few conservation areas of this magnitude left in the world. Red sand dunes, sparse vegetation and the dry riverbed of the Nossob and Auob show antelope and predator species off to spectacular advantage and providing excellent photographic opportunities. Kgalagadi is also haven for birders
