Gariep River

Also known as the Orange river. Starts in Lesotho's Maluti Mountains and forms the southern boundary of the Free State before winding its way to the Atlantic Ocean.

To the Khoikhoi people, the Orange river was known as gariep river (xhariep).

The river is also the site of one of the country's most astounding engineering feats, the Gariep Dam. This enormous inland sea and the attractive resort on its banks provide a relaxing interlude for travellers, especially for those who enjoy swimming, water-skiing, fishing and yachting.
