Schweizer Reneke


On the R34 between Vryburg and Bloemhof


Schweizer-Reneke was named after Captain Schweizer and Field-Cornet Reneke who were killed in a battle against the Korrona in 1885.

Surrounded by sunflower and maize fields – an attractive historical area to explore.


Attractions include the facade of the town’s bank which has remained unaltered since it was built in the early 1900s; Kliphuisie Guesthouse, a national monument which was the site of the town’s first police station; San Bushman rock paintings thought to be over 20 000 years old (these artworks may be seen 2km north of the town on the Delareyville Road) and Massoukop, the remains of the Koranna Kraals.
