Geography and History
Warrenton is an agricultural town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, situated 70km north of Kimberley on the Vaal River. Warrenton lies just downstream of the Vaalharts Dam, which supplies water to the Vaalharts Irrigation Scheme. The N12 national road, the main route from Kimberley to Gauteng, passes through Warrenton, and the N18 national road to Mafikeng and Botswana begins there.
In 1880, a syndicate bought the western portion of the farm Grasbult to irrigate the fertile land and produce vegetables for the diamond fields. The town which grew here was named after Sir Charles Warren. Diamonds were discovered here in 1888 and mining continued to 1926.
There is a semi-precious Stone Factory in Warrenton worth a visit.
Accommodation in Warrenton includes Guesthouses, B&B's, Hotel and resort.
