Welcome to Springbok Information


A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants and Businesses in Springbok, South Africa

 

At approximately 120km from the border to Namibia Springbok is its gateway.  Set in the Namakwa region of the Northern Cape Province, Springbok is the ideal overnight stop and is situated halfway between Cape Town and Windhoek on the N7 Cape to Namibia route.

Springbok’s main income source is from tourism and mining undertakings.  Visitors flock here during flower season when the whole region becomes a hive of activity.  The Blue Mine in Springbok was the first commercial mine in South Africa mining copper.

The town is formed around a central little hill known as “klipkoppie” which is perfect for hiking and provides wonderful views over the town.  Historical artefacts on the hill include the remains of walls to the original fort and a small 1921 stone church.  Springbok is known for its fascinating flora including the Quiver tree.  The 1861 Anglican Church now houses the Tourism Information Office where additional information can be found on the town.

Some of the things to do and see in Springbok are as follows:

  • Mineshaft dug in 1685
  • Namaqualand Museum in the old synagogue
  • Skilpad Wildflower Nature Reserve
  • Wild flowers during August / September
  • Augrabies Waterfall
  • 4x4 Routes
  • War Graves
  • Blue Mine
