Geography and History

Laingsburg is situated in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.  This friendly modern Karoo town is situated at the gateway to the Great Karoo with its proud tradition of old-fashioned hospitality. Known to many as a geologist's wonderland, Laingsburg has much to offer tourists to see and do.

Laingsburg, established in 1881, by Stephanus Greef and his wife Martha who named it after John Laing the commissioner of Crown Properties at the time, was almost entirely destroyed by the flood of 1981. As it was in the past, live stock farming is the main source of income and with that, agri- tourism is also becoming a growing trend.

Activities

San art and ancient man-made rock formations in the area shed some light on the first inhabitants.

An Anglo-Boer War blockhouse, the Wolfaardt collection and historical buildings dating back to the 1800's and early 1900`s give a fascinating account of Laingsburg’s more recent history.
