Colesberg is a lovely small town, with beautiful historical buildings. You can take long walks, as it is safe to walk around and have a look at our lovely town. Magnificent sunsets can be seen on Coleskop or you can just sit in our garden and listen to the birds or Lesser Kestrels roosting in trees. Our museum is open for visitor's also. Colesberg is a traveller's oasis and on the main Cape Town to Johannesburg route (the N1 Freeway). The town lies in typical Karoo veld and is surrounded by koppies and flanked by the famous Coleskop which can be seen from a distance of 40km. Early traveller's called it “Toverberg” (“Magic Mountain”) as it appears to get no closer. Colesberg was established as a town in 1822 and was named after Sir Lowry Cole. In sheep-farming area Colesberg breeds many of the country's top Merinos. It is also known for producing outstanding racehorses and still has a few stud farms, including one owned by legendary golfer, Gary Player. Colesberg-Kemper Museum is one of many national monuments. Among it's exhibits is the Kemper Collection dating to the 1880's, Anglo Boer War photographs and artefacts, a 19th century toy collection and a Karoo Nomad photographic exhibition.
