Touwsrivier is a small karoo town famous for its wide-open spaces, crisp champagne air, and starlit nights. It was once a bustling little town that developed around the railway, which was seen as the main economic industry in the region. Since 1985 the need for banking trains over the Hex River Pass slowly decreased and as result the town gradually started to lose its economic appeal. However, Touwsrivier is still here and not completely forgotten and is home to about 13 000 people.

Because of the lack of industry in the region, most of the residents depend on social grants and seasonal farm work. The tourism sector is however a growing source of employment as the region boasts with some top tier establishments like Aquila Private Game Reserve where you can spot the “Big-Five”.

However dire the situation might seem, the community of Touwsriver are truly special. It is amazing to see how people from all walks of life are pulling together and coming up with solutions to help ease the suffering. One great example is how collaborators are tirelessly working together towards uplifting Touwsrivier back to its former glory as can be seen on 18 July 2023 during the Fab Collab Mandela day Celebrations.

Donations received will go towards helping those persons most in need, every contribution is wholeheartedly appreciated and will make a huge difference while you stand a chance of winning an awesome weekend away for you and your friends!

The Touwsrivier Tourism Association thank you for supporting this great intiative and we hope to welcome you in our town soonest!
