Geography and History

Keimoes is a small town in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.  Keimoes is situated on the biggest island in the lower Orange River region. Virtually every inch of soil is under irrigation. Enjoy driving between the many vineyards, a spit-roast, home-baked breads, several traditional desserts and locally produced wines. 

Legend has it that Klaas Lukas, a Koranna river-people leader, established a village on the banks of the Orange River near the Tier Mountains. He called the village Keimoes (mouse nest) after the colonies of mice living there.  A more probable origin lies in the Nama words ‘gei’ (great) and ‘mus’ (fountain or eye). 

 

Activities

Dutch Reformed Mission Church situated on The Main Rd. Built by Reverend Schröder in 1889.

At the summit of the reserve, there is a lookout with a marvellous view across the Orange River Valley.
