Papendorp & Ebenhaeser

Ebenheazer and Papendorp are two fishing hamlets situated on the Olifants River.  The residents and farmers of Ebenhaezer benefit from the Olifants River Irrigation Scheme and make a living farming cattle and sheep and grow cash crops like lucerne, bean and coriander.

Papendorp was originally known as Viswater. Fishing boats, fishing nets and dried harders or bokkoms are all part of this hamlet’s cultural landscape. Residents also make a living harvesting salt.  The salt pans can be visited.


Labyrinth of Healing.  It was build in cooperation with Suzanne du Plessis and greatfull community members.
