Lichtenburg Accommodatie

The town of Lichtenburg is situated in the North West province and boasts a long history of diamond mining. Despite lying in a decidedly arid part of South Africa, it is surprisingly green and lush (a welcome oasis some say) and makes a pleasant place to visit. There is also plenty to see and do in the town and its surrounding areas.

The Lichtenburg of today has 2  main economic activities, namely cement, with 3 major producers within an 80 kilometre radius, and maize, unsurprising being at the heart of the maize triangle, South Africa's main maize-growing area. However, in days gone by, diamonds were very much the driving force, and in fact the town owes its existence to these stones.

It was officially established in 1873 and named Lichtenburg (Town of Light) by the president of the then-Transvaal, Thomas Francois Burgers. In 1926 Jacobus Voorendyk discovered a diamond on his family's farm, a discovery which sparked a diamond rush attracting 100s of 1000s of people which lasted for a decade.

While the diamond rush is no longer in full swing, there are many reminders of this influential period throughout town. The Lichtenburg Diggings Museum for example focuses on the alluvial diamond diggings in the decade after the initial discovery, while there are also numerous monuments to influential 'diamond folk' throughout the town. Historical buildings are also a feature of the town.

Burning Vlei is a unique part of Lichtenburg which is home to 2 dams - used for water sports, as well as a 9-hole golf course. About 40 kilometres from town is Wondergat, the country's deepest sink-hole and arguably its top inland diving destination.

Quiet town.

Great place to stay and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life !
- Pam Naidoo

Make sure you've got petrol before you start traveling down a long road - there's very little in the town itself.
- Melanie Cope

Lichtenburg is a quiet and beautiful place away from traffic. Everything you need around town is nearby.
- Modiehi Maitse

Very beautiful area of South Africa, with so much nature to see.
- Lezel Swarts

Visited often as a child - so loved coming back and seeing the changes and upgrades. It really is a special little town.
- Deidre Proxenos

Lichtenburg, the town and its surroundings were a real surprise for us. A nice little town with a friendly atmosphere, kind and helpful people and an atmosphere which is almost lost nowadays.
I love places where there are no traffic jams but where there are all necessary shops, services and facilities. I was impressed by the policeman greeting me while crossing the street. I was deeply impressed by the local community, gathering around the church at 6 pm and housewives marching towards the church with cakes and sandwiches just like in the good old days.
The lakeside was really beautiful. Dogs barking, birds preparing for night and a peaceful, secure feeling.
