This book contains alphabetically listed names of South African cities and towns, as well as most villages and certain settlements and townships where information was available.

More than 900 places are included in what is an informative and educational look at place names, including the year they were established, origins, previous names and alternative names. Also included are interesting historical facts and reasons to visit, as well as contact details (website or phone number).

The book is a wonderful journey through South Africa. Ann Gadd particularly enjoyed researching the smaller villages and places. There is a wide variety of attractions across the places, covering sporting interests, places to eat, historical interest, scenic spots, the longest, the tallest, the coldest and much more. Ann connected with local inhabitants or officials to get their take on the naming of their town or historical interests. All this wonderful (and sometimes whacky) information is condensed to give you a book that sums up the very core of each place.

Information includes:

  • Province
  • Year established
  • Year of municipal / borough status
  • Origin of town name
  • Previous name
  • Preferred name
  • Alternative name
  • Town theme (type of industry)
  • Historic facts (important events or interesting feature of the town)
  • Contact details (website or phone)
