Northern Cape

Alexander Bay was established after diamonds were discovered in the area in 1925. For many years the town was closed to the general public because of the lucrative mining activities. Today Alexander Bay has a population of less than 2,000.

The town is situated at the mouth of the Orange River which forms the boundary between South Africa and Namibia.
