Town in Namibia
Karas Region

Noordoewer is a town in southern Namibia. Its name means 'North Bank' in Afrikaans, in reference to the north bank of the Orange River, on which it is located. The village lies opposite the South African town of Vioolsdrif, to which it is connected by the road bridge which forms the northern end of the South African road N7 and the southern end of the Namibian road B1.

Noordoewer is known for grape production and canoeing and is an important border post on a crucial transport route between the two countries. It is planned to upgrade its status to that of a town.

Noordoewer is a small settlement on the banks of the Orange River, known for being one of the hottest places in Namibia. Fortunately, there is an abundance of water, used to irrigate fruit, in particular grapes. The village consists of the border post, a post office, bank, a couple of garages and minimarkets and a hotel. A few kilometers northwest of town along the banks of the Orange River are the base camps for a number of canoeing and rafting companies. Spending a few days floating down the river either in winter or submerged alongside summer your canoe is fabulous way to unwind from the rigours of the road.
