Ofcolaco is a tiny settlement 43 km south-east of Tzaneen, in the Limpopo province of South Africa. It was named after the Officers Colonial Land Company which purchased ground for settlement along the Selati River in 1920 and formed by demobilised British army officers after the First World War. These retired officers managed to make a reasonable living by cultivating citrus and subtropical fruit.
The commune facilities of the original Ofcolaco are long gone. Descendants of the original officers still live in the district and are proud of their heritage.
The current Ofcolaco is basically a roadside service centre with a petrol station, farm equipment some suppliers, a liquor store, a grocery store and a local market.
