Northern Cape DestinationsLoeriesfontein, Upper Karoo

Loeriesfontein may be a small town in the sparsely populated South African province of the Northern Cape, but it has plenty in the way of natural beauty and tourist attractions to offer its visitors. This little town is situated in the Hantam region, 120 kilometres from Brandvlei. Other nearby towns include Nieuwoudtville and Calvinia.

It is situated in a basin and surrounded by the beautiful mountain ranges of the Northern Cape. The south-western part of the town is part of the Namaqualand, known the world over for its proliferation of wild flowers during the South African spring time. People flock from all corners of the globe to experience the natural loveliness of about 4 000 different flower species.

This town plays an important role in the sheep farming and salt mining industries of South Africa.

The Quiver Tree Forest is one of the largest of its kinds in the world, and can be found in Loeriesfontein. These plants are also known as Aloes and can grow to a height of up to four metres. They live for hundreds of years and they are medicinally and culturally important for local cultures.

Loeriesfontein is also the proud home of one of the world’s only two windmill museums. This is called the Fred Turner Museum, and it showcases 27 assembled windpumps.
