Places With Strange Names in South Africa

Tweebuffelsmeteenskootmorsdoodgeskietfontein

The most famous of all the unusual town names in South Africa. This farm, located in the North West province, has the longest name in the country, and one of the longest in the whole world.

Tweebuffelsmeteenskootmorsdoodgeskietfontein translates directly to “Two Buffalos Shot ‘Totally’ Dead with One Shot Fountain”.

The farm was founded in 1866 by A.P. de Nysschen, who was evidently a crack-shot buffalo hunter.
