Springbok is a town of about 15,000 inhabitants, located in the northwest of the Northern Cape province in South Africa. The town itself is not really attractive or full of sights, but it is a good base during the flowering season in Namakwa (August - early October) and also a stopover going north towards Namibia, south to Cape Town or east towards Upington and further on to the west of the country.
There is a small airfield, but currently there are no commercial flights.
Springbok is at the crossroads of the N7 (south to Cape Town, north to the border with Namibia) and the N14 going west via Upington all the way to Johannesburg and Pretoria.
