HHow about sending your delegates on a literary journey, following in the footsteps of one of South Africa’s finest authors, Herman Charles Bosman? His spirit is alive and well in the small North West town of Groot Marico, and local history buffs will give you all the insights into his characters and his spectacular stories about “Oom Schalk Lourens”. The information centre will give you information on all the local attractions, including information about the nearby mampoer farms, festivals and events that take place in this rural hamlet. The town of Groot Marico in South Africa takes its name from the Groot Marico River, which winds its way through the Marico District in the North West province. Here, in a bushveld setting that is truly African, the attitudes are down-to-earth and the sunsets are heavenly. A number of art and craft outlets are housed in the tourism centre, including the Art Factory, which showcases leather work, ironwork, pottery, paintings and other local curios. There is a wide range of accommodation available in the area from guesthouses and guest farms to bona fide farming accommodation (where you might be roped into doing everyday farming chores).
