Orania, Upper Karoo

During the nineteen eighties, many Afrikaner leaders began to realize that the then current political system was not sustainable and that a unique solution should be developed to ensure the future of Afrikaners. The idea of an autonomous territory for Afrikaners was conceived and Orania was bought in 1991. Orania is an independent Afrikaner community that believes in the power of localised economies and sustainability through the community for the community. Orania's independent local government has been rendering services and promoting development successfully for twenty years without any state aid. The town focusses on the promotion of Afrikaner culture, heritage and traditions.
There are many things that tourists might want investigate when they visit Orania, such as the Koeksister Monument, Cultural History Museum, the Orange River, the town's characteristic architecture and its technologically advanced irrigation system. And yet, with its own currency and its own unique, traditional way of life, Orania's biggest attraction remains Orania itself.
