EXPLORE Kokstad


Kokstad is a small town with a Victorian charm found in the KwaZulu Natal Province of South Africa.



The town lies on the outer slopes of the Drakensberg Mountain and Mount Curries rises over it from behind.  The town is now a huge hub for the production of cheese and various dairy products. Kokstad also boasts a rich history worth discovering while visiting the town.  It is home to a number of monuments and heritage sites that you can visit to learn about the town’s history.

The Adam Hoek monument is a great place to start. It commemorates the Griqua chief, Adam Kok who led his people to this area in the hope to escape from the rampant confrontations by the Dutch settlers.  The Kokstad Bandstand and the Old Town Hall are some places worth visiting. For those that prefer outdoor ventures, there are many rivers and dams in Kokstad where you can spend the day fishing or enjoy picnics on the banks. There are several nature reserves to visit and here birding, hiking walking and camping can be enjoyed.
