Geography and History

Springbok is the Gateway to Namibia, only 120 km south of the Namibian border in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. Springbok is the ideal overnight stop, as it lies halfway between Cape Town and Windhoek. 

Springbok is set in a narrow valley bisecting the granite domes of the Klein Koperberge.  It is the principal town of Namakwa.  Shortened from Springbokfontein in 1911, Springbok owes its existence to copper-mining undertaken after 1850 and a ready supply of water.  In the late 1870s, rich copper deposits at Okiep saw most Springbok residents following their dreams to drought-stricken claims. 

Today Springbok is a prosperous town with 15,000 inhabitants. The main income is generated from tourism, mining activities, commerce and farming.  This area is called 'The Garden of the Gods' and is famous for the wondrous display of spring flowers that explode into bloom every August and September.

Activities

Blue Mine - Springbok’s first mine, it includes a walking trail offering views of the town from its western outskirts.

Springbok is a lively shopping haven, a big attraction for locals and people from the surrounding small towns as well as for the Namakwalanders from Pofadder, Garies, Kleinzee, Port Nolloth and Alexander Bay, all within less than one and a half hours drive from Springbok.

Accommodation in Springbok includes Hotels, Guest Houses, B&B's, Game Lodges and Self catering.
