Tzaneen

Established in 1912 as the capital of this district. There are a number of explanations for the name; for example, that it is derived from dzana, dance; from the tsanashrub; from batsanene, people of small villages. It now appears to be of Sotho origin and is now more or less accepted that it means place where people gathered‘.

It has the climate, soil and water to produce a wide range of crops. Tea, sub-tropical fruits, nuts, flowers, winter vegetables, potatoes and timber are grown in the valley. The development of farming stimulated the extension of the famous Selati railway line as far as the farm Pusela in 1912. It was there, around the sheds of the railway that the town was laid out.
