Keimoes and Region

Fauna and Flora

Aloe gariepensis has a restricted distribution on both sides no further than 1 km from the riverside of the Orange River, also known as the Gariep River, which marks the boundary between Namibia and Northern Cape Province of South Africa. In these arid environments the plants occur from 150 to 800 m above sea level and prefer steep rocky slopes. Populations are scattered from Keimoes westwards to as far as the Orange River mouth.

We are proud to have the densest population of these aloe right here on our premises.

They flower during August and September.

Conservation

Only 6% of an extremely high biodiversity are being protected by the government in the form of National Parks in the Northern Cape province. To help protect the fauna and flora conservation areas have been created and is administrated by the private owners in which these areas consist off. Since 2008 Kalahariwater forms part of the Gariep Flora Conservation area. Included in this area is Tierberg Nature Garden, Richter- Veldgarden at Koms, Loerkop and Koms Quiver tree Nursery. This is only the 4th conservation area in this province.

“It was very nice staying at Kalahari Water. We had a great time and it was very nice and quiet. We will come again. Thank You very much.” - Michael Van Kradenburg
