Dorsland Trek (Thirstland Trek) is the collective name of a series of northwards explorations undertaken by Boer settlers from South Africa towards the end of the 19th century, in search of political independence and better living conditions. The participants, trekboere (migrating farmers), had to traverse the vast arid areas of the Kalahari through what today forms Namibia and Botswana. It was these harsh conditions that gave the trek the name Dorsland Trek. During the Trek water and coffee were the drinks of choice and we thought it to be an appropriate name for our products. We also do Dorsland water, coffee, Olyf Oil & Balsamic.
