Northern Cape

The town of Strydenburg is situated in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.

It was established on the farm Roodepan in 1892. The story goes that there was a conflict over which farm the town should be established on and that gave rise to the name which means "town of argument" in Dutch.

The town has a population of around 3,000 people.

Strydenburg is situated in a semi-desert area and has particularly hot summers.
