About Groot Marico

Groot Marico falls under the Mgaka Modiri Molema district municipality and the Ramotshere Moiloa local municipality.   Groot Marico derives its name from the Marico River that runs through it, and relies mostly on agriculture, mining and tourism for its economy. Marico was made famous by the tales of Herman Charles Bosman, portrayed by Patrick Mynhardt, inspired by sips of mampoer for which the area is famous.

The closest airport is Sun City with Mafikeng for International flights.
