Vosburg – The Jewel of the Karoo

Entrance at Vosburg

In the Karoo lies a jewel, a little place with golden-hearted people & some of the best sundowns in Africa. Passing by – Vosburg may seem like a small village ideal for a one night stay – but what awaits you is so much more than just one night’s worth.

As part of the Karoo Highlands Route, Vosburg is located in the Bo-Karoo region of the Northern Cape Province in South Africa. It is situated halfway between Britstown and Carnarvon on the R384.

Vosburg was named after Mr J Vos and the Van Rensburg family who owned the farm Processfontein and was established in 1895, as a new settlement and Dutch Reformed parish were built. Vosburg boasts with more than 22 buildings that are national monuments in the town.
 

By 1897 Vosburg was granted municipal status and today the town is an important merino-sheep farming centre. The healthy, organic lamb is known as the ‘caviar of the karoo’.
