The successful stock farming and wine production in the region is built on hard work and pioneering spirit of early residents. Not only the ancient donkey made it’s mark in the Groblershoop area!
Development in the region was really kick started by the construction of the Boegoeberg dam a watersports and anglers’ Mecca surrounded by red Kalahari dunes, quiver trees and water channels established in 1929.
