Geography and History

Kenhardt 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. 

Kenhardt  was founded in 1868 and became a municipality in 1909. The Kenhardt landscape, although arid,  is characterised by a luscious green belt fed by the Hartbees River and by irrigation water from the Rooiberg Dam. This arid land boasts a fascination of its own with the dull brown sand being broken only by black dolerite boulders.Kenhardt is at the heart of the Dorper sheep-farming area.
