Geography and History
Brandvlei is situated 170km north of Calvinia in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. Brandvlei lies next to a 'vlei' (marsh) alongside the Sak River.
In 1961 Brandvlei was granted municipal status and in the same year a flash flood split the town in two. The town was carefully rebuilt and today it is a typical peaceful and hospitable 'platteland' town.
This is saltpan country, and apart from sheep farming, Brandvlei is also the home of SALTCOR, one of the country's largest private salt producers, exporting worldwide.
Birdlife - The salt pans are transformed into bird sanctuaries after the summer rains (Nov-Mar).
Dutch Reformed Church - Built in Neo-Gothic style.
Lekkerlê and Kans - Two farms exhibiting splendid displays of San rock engravings.
Verneukpan - In 1929, Sir Malcolm Campbell unsuccessfully attempted to break the world land-speed record here by travelling over 300mph in his Bluebird 1.
Accommodation in Brandvlei includes B&B’s, Guesthouses, hotel, Farm Stays, Camping and Self Catering
