Zastron



This area between Caledon and Orange Rivers, was once a haven for the nomadic San. With the arrival of the Basotho, and later the Voortrekkers, much squabbling over land ownership took place.

The area was a no-man's land, but did not deter Jan de Winnaar from forming the farm called Verliesfontein. The town is named after his wife, Johanna Zastron.
