An elephant tusk was used to pay for the land on which the settlement of Olifantshoek was founded, and that is how it got its name.

Olifantshoek was founded in 1912.

Although the town is situated in a dry area there are a number of scenic and adventure attractions in the area. These include the Witsand Nature Reserve, San rock paintings and the Lange Mountains.
