The town of Keimoes is situated 40km southwest of Upington on the N14. The name Keimoes probably comes from the Nama Khoe words  gei - meaning large and mus - meaning fountain. Other possibilities are that the Koranna Khoe leader, Klaas Lukas,  had establish a villiage at the location  before the white settlers moved in and had named it Keimoes - meaning mouse nest  in his own language, because of the mouse infestation of the area.

Keimoes produces sultanas, a large variety of grapes, lucerne, wheat and fruits under irrigation.

The Main Attractions are:
* Dutch Reformed Mission Church
The church was build by the Reverend Schroeder in 1889. It is now a national monument.
* Tierberg Nature Reserve
The reserve lies 4km outside of town on the road to the Augrabies  Falls National Park. It covers an area of 160 hectares that includes Tierberg and is noted for the winterflowering aloe and herds of springbok. Many succulents flower  in spring and the lookout point gives a breathtaking view of the Orange River Valley.
* Wine Tasting and Tours
Enjoy great wines offered by the Orange River Wine Cellars Co-operative. On the slopes of the Tierberg Mountain you can enjoy wonderful views of the many islands of the Orange River and the man-made irrigation schemes.
The mighty Orange River ilined by lush green vegatation depicts the typical scenary of the Green Kalahari.
The fertile soil of the Green Kalahari is ideal for growing grapes of a large variety. In Keimoes the green vineyards create a cool refreshing atmosphere that reminds one of the Stellenbosch wine regions.
