THE BORDER POST TO NAMIBIA

Vioolsdrift lies 677 km north of Cape Town on the N7. The border post in Vioolsdrif is open 24 hours a day throughout the year. At the start of South African school holidays one has to expect kilometer long queues. At all other times the procedure is smooth and fast. Travellers in a rented car have to produce – besides their passports – a letter from the car rental company explicitly permitting the crossing of the border. Namibia charges a road toll.

THE ORANGE RIVER

The Orange River is wonderful for canoeing. The river is relatively tame and the landscape dramatically beautiful. Canoes can be hired from most canoeing tour operators in Vioolsdrift - they also offer canoeing tours.

VIOOLSDRIFT AND NOORDOEWER

Vioolsdrift is a small town on the south bank of the Orange River some 350 km from the river mouth. Noordoewer is the corresponding community on the north bank of the river in Namibia. Since the independence of Namibia from South Africa in 1992 a border post has been established in both Vioolsdrift and Noordoewer although the two communities are closely linked through historical co-operation.

The main development in the area is agriculture and a canal supplies approximately 15 million m3 per annum to the various areas of irrigation. Lucern and vegetables are the main crops – grapes are not grown since the temperatures tend to be too high and the absence of frost prevents the vines from hibernating through the winter months.
