Introduction to Tourism Development in the Marico
The Art Factory is a small shop situated in the Information Centre in the main street of Groot-Marico.
Anglo Boer War Sites
Groot-Marico was one of the places where Boers and British were fighting during the 1899 - 1902 war. Kleinfontein, Bokkraal and Wonderfontein were some of the places where they engaged in battle. There is a small cemetery on the farm Wonderfontein where some British Soldiers were buried.
The Eye of the Marico
The Marico river is one of the few perennial rivers in this part of the country. The eye is a fountain (17 metres deep!) with the purest and cleanest water that you have ever seen. It is a favourite spot for Scuba diving and camping.
The Marico Bushveld Dam
It is also known as Riekertsdam. This dam forms part of an irrigation scheme which provides farmers with water during the dry seasons. This dam is also used extensively for water sports like fishing, skiing, sailing etc. There is a well equipped caravan and camping park right next to the dam.
