Groot Marico (E 8)

Name: Groot Marico

The author Herman Charles Bosman, one of South-Africa's best known short story writers,

held the Marico in high esteem.

He wrote many wonderful stories full of humour about the Marico and its people.

Where is the Marico?

The Marico District is situated in the North-West Province

in the Republic of South-Africa.

Towns located in this area are: Zeerust, Swartruggens, Groot-Marico and Nietverdiend.

The town Groot-Marico (it means Big-Marico) is named after the Groot-Marico river, one of the few perennial rivers in this area. The name has got nothing to do with the size of the town, which is very small. Groot-Marico is well known for its beautiful African bushveld surroundings and the special kind of hospitality of its people. It is the ideal place to come to when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life.
