Kakamas is a small town situated in the Green Kalahari region of the Northern Cape. Kakamas is an interesting little town sitting in the fertile valley of the lower Orange River. Beautiful vineyards, cotton and Lucerne fields grace the valley. The towns economy is based primarily on farming as Kakamas farmers produce export quality grapes, raisins, oranges and dates which are distributed worldwide. The hot and dry climate is perfect for growing these.
Tunnels 3-4m high and 2.5m wide, that were once dug by hand as part of a farming project and completed in 1911, can still be seen and explored by visitors to the town. Another interesting attraction is the Hydro-electrical power station, one of the first in the country.
Accommodation options in the town include Bed and Breakfast’s, Guesthouses and Farm Stays - something suitable for everyone.
