Geography and History

Vosburg is located in the Bo-Karoo region of the Northern Cape Province in South Africa.   Vosburg 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.   Vosburg was established in 1895, as a new settlement and Dutch Reformed parish was 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’.
