Kamieskroon region

The Northern Cape is the largest and most sparsely populated of the provinces of South Africa, created in 1994 when the Cape Province was split up.

Its capital is Kimberley. It includes the Trans Kgalagadi and Richtersveld-Ai-Ais frontier parks and the Namaqualand National Park, which is part of a trans-frontier park with Botswana. It also includes the Augrabies Falls and the diamond mining regions in Kimberley and Alexander Bay.

The Namaqualand region (in the west) is famous for its Namaqualand daisies. The towns of De Aar and Colesberg are part of the Great Karoo, and are major transport nodes between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. The Orange River flows through the province, forming the borders with the Free State and with Namibia (to the northwest). It is also used to irrigate the many vineyards near Upington, which is very important in this mostly arid province. Kuruman, in the north-east of the province, is famous as a mission station and also for its 'eye'. Northern Cape has the largest percentage of native speakers of Afrikaans of any province of South Africa

The provincial motto, Sa ||a !aisi 'uisi (“We go to a better life”)is written in the !Auni (N|uu) language of the Khomani San in the Northern Cape, and was given in 1997 by one of the last speakers of the language, Ms Elsie Vaalbooi of Rietfontein, who has since died. This was the first officially registered motto in the history of South Africa to be in a Khoe-San language. Subsequently, South Africa's National Motto, !Ke e /xarra //ke, was derived from the extinct Northern Cape Xam language.
