Riviersonderend is a small farming community which developed out of a service to the farms in the surrounding area. It has a very peaceful and rural atmosphere with cattle and sheep lazily roaming the green pastures. The mountain water is brown in colour (caused by organic plant material) and originates from the southern slope of  the Riviersonderend mountains. It is believed to be the purest drinking water in this country.

There are many beautiful walks and hikes to take and nature lovers will delight  in the breathtaking views across the valley.



There are many things to do in and around Riviersonderend. Adventure seekers have exhilarating kloofing adventures to choose from - for the more extreme trips you will find yourself jumping off high rock faces into inky black pools. If your idea of fun is not plunging into the depths of icy pools, why not go fishing or take a row down the river? Riviersonderend also has a 9 hole golf course.

Why not take drive to Stormsvlei where you can enjoy a lovely meal and buy some country crafts and dried flowers? En route you are bound to see some majestic Blue Cranes which have found sanctuary in the fields around the area.
