 The unusual sight of windmills on every property.

On the banks of the dry Gamagara River, Dibeng was given its name by the Tswana. Meaning ‘first drinking place’, Dibeng is also called ‘the sunflower town’ because, as residents have to provide their own water, every property sports a windpump. 

The town has very strong Dutch Reformed roots, the congregations at Kuruman, Kathu and Olifantshoek having seceded from the original congregation in Dibeng.
