Geography and History

Jan Kempdorp is an idyllic town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.  Jan Kempdorp serves the southern section of the Vaalharts Irrigation Scheme.   It is situated 96 kilometres (60 mi) north of Kimberley, the provincial capital, and 43 kilometres (27 mi) west of Christiana in North West province.

Jan Kempdorp was laid out on the farm Andalusia and at first bore that name. During the Second World War it was the site of a concentration camp housing German men regarded as potentially dangerous by the authorities. The first settlers bought plots in 1938, and the town was proclaimed in 1953 and named after General Jan Kemp, a former Minister of Lands. Municipal status was attained in 1967.
