Northern Cape

Groblershoop is a small village situated near the Orange River in the Northern Cape.

It owes much of its existance to the construction of the Boegoeberg Dam, on the Orange River, which was completed in 1929.

The settlement was originally known as Sternham but was changed to Groblershoop in 1939. It was named after a former Minster of Land Affairs Piet Grobler.

The area around Groblershoop is known for its export quality table grapes and sultanas. Wine is also produced.
