Ohrigstad offers a tranquil escape to vast game-strewn ranches and long vistas. In the Ohrigstad district lie caves and mountains, dams and rivers, brooks and streams. It is truly a nature-lover’s paradise.
Ohrigstad is the oldest town on the Panorama Route and was founded by Voortrekker Andries Hendrik Pretorius, who named it Andries-Ohrigstad after himself and George Ohrig or Orieg, a merchant backer of the Voortrekkers. Sadly for Pretorius, the Andries (his first name) was dropped from the name.
