Northern Cape DestinationsStrydenburg, Upper Karoo

Strydenburg is a largely Afrikaans town that is situated in the largest, but most sparsely populated province of South Africa, the Northern Cape. This province has a beauty all its own.

This town is part of the Thembelihle Municipality. It occupies a total area of almost 38 square kilometres and is home to more than 3 000 people. It is a small, quiet town that makes its visitors feel welcomed and relaxed during their stay.

Strydenburg was established as a farm in 1892 and continued to grow until it became its own municipality in 1914. As such, it retains some of its historical appeal, which gives it a distinct sense of personality, a cheerful vibe that is tangible.

There are a number of trails around Strydenburg, and these provide visitors with a penchant for the outdoors with the ideal opportunity to hike and walk in the countryside. These wonderful vistas can also be enjoyed on horseback. Keep an eye out for the many avian species, as well as the unique vegetation that characterises this part of South Africa.

The semi-desert climate of Strydenburg means that this destination is hot and dry during summer and warm during winter. Winter evenings can become very chilly. These conditions mean that Strydenburg is warm to hot and dry almost all year round.
