ATTRACTIONS

Many people think Pofadder is named after South Africa’s poisonous puffadder snake. However, the town gets its name from a local chief called Klaas Pofadder, who lived and died (in a hail of bullets) at this spot.

Pofadder is situated on the main route from Upington to Springbok and 60km from the Onseepkans borderpost to Namibia. In spring, the Pofadder region becomes the ‘front door’ of Namaqualand’s northern reaches, and the dry lands come alive with the annual splashes of daisies.

The hotel offers birdwatching, dune driving and quad biking trips.
