Vryburg at a glance

Vryburg is a large (ish) town that finds itself in the heart of cattle farming country, in what is now known as the Bophirima region.

Well-preserved old buildings manage to blend with the more modern architecture that dominates. Vryburg receives many a visitor because of the town's situation on the main railway line between Cape Town and Botswana, and its position on the N14, which runs across Gauteng and links up with Springbok in the Northern Cape.

Attractions in the area include a golf course, an annual agricultural show, the Leon Taljaard Nature Reserve and rock engravings at Kinderdam, half way between Vryburg and Madibogo.
