Surrounded by koppies and flanked by the towering flat-topped mountain known as Coleskop, which can be seen from 40 km away, Colesberg is one of the Northern Cape's most beautiful towns. When the sun slips to the horizon, brushing the skies with brilliant hues, Coleskop's former name, Towerberg (meaning Magic Mountain) seems more appropriate. In earlier times there was a marsh at the foot of the mountain, frequented by large herds of game and also where travelers watered their animals.
Today Colesberg is a traveler's oasis on the N1 highway between Cape Town and Johannesburg, offering many attractive accommodation establishments and educational and entertaining distractions,such as the Colesberg Kemper Museum, the Anglican church designed by Lady Grey and the Doornkloof Nature Reserve. It is an important sheep-farming area, spread over half-a-million hectares and greater Colesberg breeds many of the country's top Merinos. It is also renowned for producing high-quality race horses and many stud farms, including the one owned by legendary golfer Gary Player, are nearby.
