About Us
Vryburg - Texas of South Africa

Set amidst African savannah grasslands lies Vryburg, which is the prosperous agricultural and industrial centre of the entire Bophirima region. Vryburg has a strong sense of history, one which its citizens nurture with pride. The town’s contemporary architecture blends with its stunning surroundings and the well-preserved old buildings which have been lovingly maintained over the years.

When the Republic of Stellaland was proclaimed in 1882, Vryburg was established as its capital. The Republic had its own postal service including a postage stamp series and a magnificent flag. Their freedom however, was short-lived. In the same year President Kruger annexed the state under the Transvaal government. This move in turn displeased the British and in 1885 the territory was annexed to Britain without any resistance.

Fascinating historical attractions in and around Vryburg include a stunning stone church that was built in 1904 by the London Missionary Station, an Anglo-Boer War concentration camp cemetery, the Voortrekker Monument that was erected in 1935 to commemorate the Great Trek, the Vryburg Museum that illustrates the town’s social and economic history, and the astonishing ancient rock engravings at Kinderdam, situated halfway between Vryburg and Madibogo.

The town today is a thriving industrial and agricultural hub and hosts South Africa's third largest agricultural show. An enormous turnover of more than 250 000 head of cattle per year lead to the nickname- Texas of South Africa.

The summer months, August to March, have brief, refreshing afternoon thunderstorms. The sky is then a mardi gras of electrical energy, a bruised sky opened up by flashes of brilliance. Temperatures range between 22°C & 34°C (71.6°F & 93.2°F)

Winter months bring dry, sunny days and chilly nights. The average winter, May to July, temperature is 15.5°C (60°F) but can range from an average of 2°C (35.6°F) to 20°C (68°F) in a single day.

Vryburg is a must see destination - one that is diverse and exciting. We offer some of the finest game reserves, cultural sights, archaeological treasures as well as entertainment resorts.

We treasure the past, take from it what is noble and right and strive to build a unique and magnificent future.
