Town in Namibia
Karas Region

Noordoewer is a town in southern Namibia, one the hottest locations in Namibia where summer temperatures can easily exceed 40 degrees Centigrade. The translation from in Afrikaans is "North Bank" referring to the north bank of the Orange River - border between Namibia and Northern Cape Province of South Africa, on which Noordoewer is located. Noordoewer is set opposite of the South African town of Vioolsdrif and two towns are connected by the road bridge as it forms the northern end of the South African national highway N7 and the southern end of the Namibian main trunk road B1 running through the whole of Namibia till border with Angola.

Noordoewer is an important border post on the banks of the Orange River, where most of goods are transferred between South Africa and Namibia. However, there is an abundance of water that is used to irrigate fruit plantations as well as grape farms. Noordoewer has all necessary infrastructure: the border post, a post office, bank, a couple of garages, fuel stations, guest houses, lodges, mini markets and a hotel. A few kilometers north-west of town along the banks of the Orange River are the base camps for a number of canoeing and rafting companies: Felix Unite and Amanzi Adventures. Spending a few days floating down the river either in winter or submerged alongside summer your canoe is fabulous way to unwind from the long and winding roads.
