Geography and History

Onseepkans is a small settlement on the banks of the Orange River in Northern Cape Province of South Africa. It is at the border post with Namibia for traffic between Pofadder in South Africa and Keetmanshoop in Namibia. The name, translated literally from Afrikaans, means "(an) opportunity to rinse (off soap)".

Onseepkans was established in approximately 1916 by missionary settlers and relies today on the irrigated lands which are supplied with water from the Orange River.
