General Information

Adam Kok and his folk spent nine years on the slopes of Mount Currie before moving to the valley floor below ... around a makeshift 'palace'. The leader declared this to be his seat of government and named it Kokstad - Kok's Town.  The original Town Hall - built in 1910 - is a National Monument now serving as the local library. The former library - built in 1907 - is also a National Monument, and today houses the Kokstad Museum.  Here you'll glean fascinating insights into both Griqua and colonial history, including the eccentricities of Frontier Armed and Mounted Police commander, Sir Walter Currie - the name behind the mountain.

Swartberg stands at the Kokstad-Matatiele crossroads and, in keeping with the trends of surrounding local history, its original hotel - built in 1922 - now serves as a supermarket and trading store. The bed-and-breakfast hospitality of local farmers is another regional trademark maintained here. And don't forget to reserve your tickets for the wonderfully scenic, steam-train journey to Creighton in the southern Midlands - it happens but once a year and absolutely everyone wants to be aboard!
