Situated in what is known as the Green Kalahari, the picturesque town of Keimoes lies just 40 km southwest of Upington on the N14.

Although the origin of the town's name remains unresolved, it makes for great folklore. It is believed that the name came either from the Nama Khoe words 'gei' - meaning large and 'mus' meaning fountain or perhaps from Klaas Lukas, the legendary Koranna Khoe leader who had established a village on the river banks prior to white settlers moving in who named the village Keimoes meaning 'mouse nest' in his own language. This due to the vast colonies of mice in the area.
Economy and Agriculture

Keimoes has developed a formidable and broad agricultural base which includes the cultivation of a large variety of grapes, lucerne, wheat, peaches, pecan nuts and watermelons all under irrigation. Keimoes is famous for its sultanas which are exported worldwide.
