Description [ correction ]

You’ll find this little town on the eastern flank of the Orange River. Its Afrikaans name means 'North Bank' and points
to the fact that the Orange, which forms the border between Namibia and South Africa, runs into the Atlantic due west
of this point.
The Namibian border post of the same name lies a short distance outside the town while across the
river you’ll find Vioolsdrift, its South African counterpart. Besides the industry that a busy border post attracts,
this area also boasts grape, date and tomato farms.

Traveller Description

Many South African visitors are drawn to this area by the canoeing and rafting activities offered here. While this dusty brown town doesn’t offer much else, there’s a reasonable number of accommodation venues in the vicinity located along the lush, green riverfront.
