Clocolan sits at the foot of the Hlohlowane Mountains and is its namesake too. Hlohlowane, meaning ͚ridge of the battle͛ in Sesotho and was said to be mispronounced by non-Sotho speakers. This mispronunciation stuck as Clocolan.
Sunflowers, wheat, maize, dairy, asparagus, potatoes and cherries are all produced in the area thanks to the abundance of water and fertile soil.

Clocolan was a battleground for the first half of the 19th Century as the Kwena and South Sothos, who were the first to settle in this region, faced many battles and clashes with several other groups in that time. The town was formed as a result of an amalgamation of two farms that were conquered in the Basotho War of 1865.
