Mookgopong was developed after the discovery of minerals and later due to the mail coach station that was established in the village to cater for the coachmen from other towns en-route to or from Pretoria.
The town was officially established in 1907 on the farm Vischgat. The town and region are signified by the Euphorbia trees which are prevalent in the region.
The town is today still sustained by the mining of tin and fluorspar with the tourist industry being the secondary form of income to the region.
The setting at the foot of the Swaershoek Mountains is a perfect location for holiday makers from larger cities like Pretoria or Johannesburg being only at most 2 hours’ drive.
There are many tourist attractions to the town including the Lapalala Game Reserve, the Marakele National Park, the Nylsvley Nature Reserve and Schuinsdraai Nature Reserve.
The town itself is quiet and well established with all the important amenities in place like schools, malls and industrial hubs.
The available schools in Mookgopong include Gruisfontein Primary School, Laerskool Eugene N Marais, Makhutjisha Senior Secondary School, Hoërskool Hans Strijdom and Euphorbia Private School.
It is a mixed use residential suburb with homes of every variety like townhouses, vacant stands and freehold homes which are from conventional to upmarket.
The demand for property in the town is driven by demand for location and proximity to amenities and the added advantage that the town is surrounded by all the tourist attractions of game reserves, private lodges, guest houses and Bed and Breakfasts.
