Colesberg
is located in the Central region of South Africa.

The town was widely known to early European settlers for the distinctive rock outcrop known as Cole's Kop, which can be seen for many miles in this largely featureless Karoo landscape. These days the town is an agricultural centre renowned in particular for sheep farming and race-horse breeding.

It is commonly used as a stopover as it lies on the N1 midway between Johannesburg and Cape Town. The best accommodation is south of town at Kuilfontein Cottages.


The Gariep Dam across the Orange river lies 40km to the east of Colesberg and has a few accommodation options in the vicinity.


Phillippolis is a sleepy Karoo village north of the N1, previously home to author Laurens van der Post, with a nice arty feel and some decent low cost guest-houses.
