The Northern Cape is the largest province in South Africa and the distances between towns are enormous due to its sparse population. The province is dominated by the Karoo Basin and consists primarily of sedimentary rocks and some Dolerite intrusions.

The southeast and south of the Northern Cape is high-lying in the Nuweveld and Roggeveld districts. The Namaqualand area is famous for its spring flowers and is hilly to mountainous.

The central areas of the Northern Cape Province are flat with interspersed salt pans. The northern regions are primarily Kalahari Desert, characterised by acacia tree dry savanna and parallel red sand dunes.

The Northern Cape borders Botswana and Namiba. Domestically, it borders the Western Cape, Free State, Eastern Cape and North West Provinces.
The principal river system in the province is the Gariep River Basin, draining the interior of South Africa westwards into the Atlantic Ocean.
