Pofadder Green Kalahari | Northern Cape
Pofadder, a sheep farming town, lies 170km from Springbok, and is well-known to geologists and mineralogists because of the many interesting geological deposits found here. After the rains, the area is carpeted with colourful wild flowers.
Some claim that Pofadder was named after Klaas Pofadder, a koranna (Koi-Koi) Captain of the area. Others maintain that this is an exercise in latter-day political correctness and that no record exists to prove that the village was not named after the venomous snake that is common enough in the district.
This little town lies close to the Namibian border and has several old buildings, one being the Roman Catholic Church. Built by the mission, it runs a blockmaking enterprise, a chicken farm and a dairy, giving employment to the poor. There are many day walks and, in spring, a wonderworld of plants carpets the veld.
