The peaceful little town of Bothaville lies at the crossroads of the R30 and the R727 and is the centre of what is known as the sandveld and maize triangle. The district produces maize in large quantities, and the town is a busy shipment point with a grain elevator and a mill. Annually the town plays host to one of the largest agricultural festivals in the world, NAMPO as well as the annual Food & Witblits Festival. Boating, fishing, sailing and swimming are popular on the Vals River that meanders south of town. Worth a visit are a few historical buildings such as a small three-roomed sandstone building in President Street that originally served as the town's police station.
