Lichtenburg is a town in North West Province which is the administrative centre of the Ditsobotla Local Municipality. The town was established in 1873 and in 1926, Jacobus Voorendyk, discovered a diamond on his family farm and within 12 months there were 108,000 fortune seekers on the scene. The resulting diamond rush lasted ten years.

Lichtenburg lies in the heart of the maize triangle, which is the main maize growing area in South Africa. Another main economic activity is the production of cement. Within a radius of 80 km of Lichtenburg there are three major cement producers. This creates an opportunity for long distance transport and related activities.

Lichtenburg is situated approximately 230 km west of Johannesburg on the main route to Mmabatho. The climate is moderate and healthy. Frost occurs in winter, but the days are pleasantly sunny. As a result of natural water resources and wide open spaces it has a natural charm and is a true oasis in an otherwise rather arid North West Province.
