Geography and History

Kenhard is a small town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.   Kenhardt is situated about 120 km from Upington, the largest town in the area. 

On 27 December 1868, special magistrate Maximillian Jackson, with a police contingent, was sent to act as a bulwark against the Koranna, whose anti-colonial resistance had erupted into open conflict. Jackson arrived in Kenhardt and set up camp under a giant camelthorn tree.  The town developed from under this tree, becoming a municipality in 1909. The Hartbees River, with its many sweet thorn trees, provides a green belt irrigated by the Rooiberg Dam.Kenhardt is at the heart of the Dorper sheep-farming area.
