Naboomspruit (Mookgophong)

To me Naboomspruit means so much: It symbolizes to me a green bushveld as far as the eye can see, game that can be seen from many dirt tracks running through the area, the Waterberg, and water rushing down the slopes of the mountains and hills after good rains.

Naboomspruit lies in the Limpopo region and was founded in 1910. It was named after the naboom (euphorbia) trees found here.

Like most places in Limpopo the name was changed to Mookgophong.

The main attraction of the town are definitely the many game and hunting farms, lodges and warm mineral springs.

On the website you'll find a good map with the location of the town.

Below are photographs from the direct vicinity of Naboom.

If you in the mood to move to Naboom like I've done end of 2003 then contact Jurina at Jurina Properties!
