Orania is a South African town that is located along the Orange River in the arid Karoo region of its Northern Cape province. It is the first existing realization of the Volkstaat concept and is unique among South African towns in being the only all-Afrikaner enclave in South Africa. Orania is commonly known as the only place on Earth that is officially Afrikaners only, and thus an interesting place to visit.


You found a monument that they had rescued from Boxburg, sited on the top of a hill overlooking Orania, which commemorates the Irish soldiers who fought on behalf of the Boers against the English during the Anglo-Boer war. There is not much to see.
