Koppies Travel Guide

Koppies - Free State - People normally make jokes about Koppies in Afrikaans. They will ask what is the Capital City of Koppies, then people will frowning, scratching their heads and then shake their heads, and the answer will come in Afrikaans as "Pierings" in English it means Sauces. But that is just a joke, because not many people know the town Koppies. Koppies is a town filled with ancient history. First of all - the town is for some reason halfway from Cape Town to the Kruger Game Park. 60 km after Kroonstad and 80 km before Sasolburg/Vanderbijlpark. This town is a forgotten place. Once glorius and very popular. Currently its inhabitants is farmers and very poor people staying in the town and township. But so RICH in history. It is a true Diamond, still to be detected. It has from history, that the Khoisan, was the first inhabitants of the town Koppies, and the whole of Koppies was a swamp. Then the Basutho's was following the Khoisan, after the Khoisan left Koppies. Then came the Matabeles, whom was very aggressive and started killing the Basutho. Fighting for the land. Then came the Voortrekkers, who take side with the Basutho and helped them against the Matabeles. Koppies was previously known as "Honey Kopjes", because of its Honey Bees, which still form part of the district. You will always find swarm of bees. Then came the Anglo Boer War. And Koppies had its own Concentration Camp. And its own Emily Hobhouse Monument. She started a weaving school in Koppies. Clover was also situated in Koppies. And the Jews were running all the businesses in town. The famous horse "Prince"of one of the soldiers in the Enlish Army is buried in Koppies. Needless to say that all these sites has been neglected during the years. But still there. Government decided to give the Boer another chance in live after the war, and so they started building the Koppies Dam. In 1948 the biggest dam in South Africa with the most water supply. Building the dam, was hard labour and most of the men quit building. Government new they had trouble, and then offered the remaining Boers, land, ox's and ploughs, if they will stay on, and finish the dam. Each received a piece of land, 4 x ox's and a plough. And the wetlands was given to them all, for their cattle to graze. It is clay ground, and hard to work. Most Boers gave that up as well. The tuff ones bought it from those who could go on, or did not want to carry on. Eventually they called this part of town the "Koppies Settlement" . Most of the farmers who owe land in the Koppies Settlement owe like 8 to 10 and more pieces of land, and not all of them is joined pieces of ground, they are spread all over the settlement. And that is how we came to buy a piece of land, which consist of 9 Title Deeds. We saw the land, fell in love, and decided that is where we are going to build our dream. Indunduma Resort. After rezoning our land consist now of 3 title deeds, the resort and the farming land. Most of the farmers in the settlement is farming with lucerne. My dream for Koppies is another Clarens. After we started developing Indunduma Resort, many farmers in the area, upgraded their homes. Homes which was build in the eighteen hundreds, has been rebuild in a much more modern style. Even the government started to upgrade the Dam's facilities, and recently finished their own chalet's. More and more people is visiting Koppies. And we believe that new blood and people from the cities, can make a difference to our little town. For instance, in our Township there are 15 different churches in one street. There is also a Taxi Dermis, Lion farms, game farms. And we have in our area 350 different bird species. We invite people to come and visit our town, and if they would like to, to invest.
