              Welcome to Riviersonderend

Riviersonderend, a small farming village with a peaceful rural atmosphere situated on the N2 highway, approximately 160 km from Cape Town. The town of Riviersonderend and its surrounding farms are known for sightings of South Africa's national bird - the blue crane.

There is much uncertainty about the origin of the name Riviersonderend. Willem ten Thyne, who was at the Cape in 1673, referred to the river as the "sine fine flumen" ("River sonder eynde"), which had its source in the mountains. In 1707, Jan Hartogh, who was a horticulturist in service of the Dutch East India Company, as well as a traveler, referred to the river as the "Kanna-kam-kanna" The word could have been derived from the Hessequa local tribe of herdsmen, which meant "water endless water".

Riviersonderend of "Rivier Zonder End" as it was known in earlier days, was established in 1923, when Ms Edith McIntyre sold her farm Tierhoek for 6 000 pounds to the church council, for the establishment of the local Dutch Reformed congregation.

Many visitors to the area have noticed the distinct brown colour of the mountain water that originates from the southern slopes of the Riviersonderend Mountains. The colour is caused due to organic plant material, and is renowned as the purest drinking water.

Riviersonderend has many hidden secrets well protected by its residents. If you are someone who takes pleasure in exploring and discovering what nature can unfold, taking only pictures and leaving nothing but footprints, Riviersonderend welcomes you!
