About Pofadder

Afrikaans name for Puff-adder snake. Pofadder falls under the Namakwa district municipality and Khai Ma local municipality. Pofadder has an airport. It lies on the N14 between Upington and Springbok, about 50 km from Onseepkans on the R358 and the Namibian border where you will also find a Quiver Tree forest on your way there.

There are two large solar power plants going up in this area as it is ideal for this venture.

Pofadder History

Urban legends abound as to the origin of its name, but no one can say for sure, as there is no historic proof to any of the theories.

Attractions in and around Pofadder

This is a very arid region, yet explodes into color each Spring (Aug/Sep) after rain.  Botanists are intrigued by this area as they are forever finding new species of  Xerophytes (Greek xero (dry) phyte (plant)),  rare Lithops, and other plants that have adapted to this desert environment, or only come out when the situation is exactly right.

Aparently the Richie Falls are called ‘verkeerdomvalle ‘  or wrong way round falls because it seems as though the river flows in the wrong direction (uphill).
