ABOUT

Why the Name BOORGAT?

The property was purchased and redeveloped by Schalk Shepherd, who discovered a BOREHOLE (BOORGAT) right in the middle of where the current Bar is located. A BOREHOLE (BOORGAT) is a symbol of Hope for people, animals and plants. Not just in the drought stricken Karoo, but all around South Africa and throughout the world.

Schalk’s wish for this establishment, which situates in one of the coldest towns in South Africa, is that it will re-unite old friends and build new friendships. A place where people will gain Hope and cherish the simplicity….for something as obvious as WATER. Thus, the name……BOORGAT.
