Kathu,‘the town under the trees’, came into being because of Iscor’s iron ore mining activity in the Kalahari. .
This is the only town lying at the foot of the Langeberg; Olifantshoek is a farming town close to two game ranches on the Namakwari Route..
Dibeng started off as a small settlement on the banks of the Gamagara River which provided water for the small-holdings that run the full length of town.
Sesheng is located to the west of Kathu and was initially planned as, a high density residential area for mine workers, without families of any social structure.
