About Us

The story of Kranspoort as we know it today started in 1990 when the town was proclaimed a holiday town. From its humble beginnings, it grew into the beautiful town it is. Nestled between rugged mountains in a typical bushveld setting it is home to free-roaming game. It is also a birder’s paradise and offers hiking trails and 4x4 routes as well as a pristine 9-hole golf course and scenic picnic spots. Kranspoort is situated next to the N11 between Middelburg and Groblersdal and a mere five kilometers from the important natural landmark in the area, Loskop Dam. The dam boasts a holiday resort offering several watersport facilities, a nature reserve, holiday accommodation, and a restaurant and shop.

But Kranspoort can trace its existence back to its predecessor, a holiday village known as Die Bron, situated between Groblersdal and Bronhorstspruit. This property was expropriated by the government in the mid-80s. The founders used their government payout to buy a new tract of land on which the two-holiday townships Kranspoort Holiday Town and Kranspoort Holiday Town Extension 1, were proclaimed on 28 November 1990. They were unfortunately liquidated in the early nineties where after a group of businessmen (Group 12) took over the development. In 2004 the owners accepted the responsibility of the management of the town with the creation of an Article 21 company that looks after the interests of all owners.

The residential area has been divided into more than 500 plots interspersed with open park areas. More than 300 houses have been built or are nearing completion. There are  several senior citizens that came to the town to retire. Some residents work in nearby towns. The last category is those people who spend weekends and holidays here just to recharge their batteries. Several estate agents operate in the town.

Thanks to Kranspoort’s own neighbourhood watch in conjunction with the local CPF and a security company with alarm monitoring and armed reaction. Kranspoort Residents are ready and able and have a general feeling of safety. More than 80 two-way radios enable our neighborhood watch to quickly render assistance in case of emergency.

Kranspoort’s coat of arms: 

The shield contains an aloe placed centrally, symbolizing the flora of the area. Above it, an antelope is symbolic of the fauna,

while two cliffs forming a valley are indicative of the topography of the vicinity. A helmet is placed above the shield,

while the helmet is topped by a town wall, symbolizing the town status of Kranspoort. Perched on the wall is a

woodland kingfisher – a nod to the wide variety of bird life at Kranspoort. The motto “Relaxo in Natura” means “Relax in Nature”.
