Northern Cape

The name Prieska comes from the Korana term "place of the lost she-goat". Prieska was founded in 1882.

It is a smallish town with a population of around 15,000 people.

Although Prieska is situated on the banks of the Orange River it is located in a hot and arid region.

There is quite a lot of crops grown near the Orange River and some sheep farming.
