Geography and History

Van Wyksvlei is is a small town situated in the Northern Cape province of South Africa   The town sits 149km east of Brandvlei and over 100km west of Prieska on untarred roads.  

Van Wyksvlei was established in 1880 and was named after a farmer called Van Wyk.  The Afrikaans suffix vlei, means 'pond', 'marsh' which is quite ironic since this is one of the driest places in South Africa, and the surrounding region is named the Dorsland "thirsy land"!   Van Wyksvlei lies close to the first, state-funded dam, built in 1882 and still in use.  

Van Wyksvlei saw some action in the Second Boer War where two Victoria Crosses were awarded -  Harry Hampton and Henry Knight were awarded the medal for gallant acts
