Hopetown lies at the edge of the Great Karoo on an arid slope leading down to the Orange River, named by the great explorer Colonel Robert Gordon in honour of William Prince of Orange. The Bushmen called this The Great River, ‘Nu Gariep’, as it carries 23% of the total water run -off of South Africa to the sea.
Hopetown serves the surrounding fruit, stock, wheat and potato farms. The Gazella Game Reserve, on the banks of the Orange River, provides sanctuary for gemsbok, eland, kudu and springbok. The ultimate outdoor experience in the vicinity includes white-water rafting, game-viewing, bird-watching and hiking.
