Welcome to the FBDM Tourism

The Northern Cape punctuates the South African landscape beautifully, as it adds rugged starkness to the patchwork of diversity. The list of must-sees ranges from the famous battlefields of Magersfontein and Paardeberg, to the Kimberley Ghost Trail and the Township Wonders.

Frances Baard District is nestled in the north-eastern corner of the Northern Cape Province and comprises out of four local municipalities, each boasting its own unique offerings.  The District is well located along the alternative route N12 from Cape Town to Johannesburg, therefore well situated for local and international tourist markets. It is a place of arid natural beauty, where resilient green cactuses and tenacious thorn trees fill the landscape, and bright yellow sunflowers can be seen following the sun’s arc across deep blue skies. Five gushing rivers divide this landscape: the Vaal, Orange, Modder, Harts and Riet, which give life to the region and its inhabitants

Frances Baard District is predominantly a mining and agricultural district, but also offers rich experiences in terms of culture and history.
