Geography and history
Leeudoringstad is a small town situated in the Dr Kenneth Kaunda region of the North West Province in South Africa. It was founded in 1920 on a farm named Rietkuil. The name of the town is derived from a certain type of thorn bush named the Leeudoring which is Afrikaans for “lion thorn”. The area was once full of wildlife and plants, but the act of hunting saw the disappearance of many of the area’s fauna and flora. These animals and plants still live on the name of this town.
Leeudoringstad has a total population of about 2 000 inhabitants and the majority of them speak Afrikaans. This town is the proud host of the headquarters of Suidwes Landbou which is one of the largest agricultural companies in the country.
