Cannon Island Settlement (Kanoneiland) is a beautiful settlement on the biggest inland island in the lower Orange River Valley region of the Northern Cape province of South Africa. Virtually every inch of soil is under irrigation with water canals supporting the lush vineyards, foliage and fields that are found there.
In winter the island looks like normal vineyards on dry land but in summer when the rains fall the islanders often have to build up barrages to prevent the island and their residences from flooding.
Guided tours of the island is an experience not to be missed where one can enjoy island hospitality, traditional meals and locally grown wines.
Cannon Island Settlement (Kanoneiland) has an interesting history which the locals are overjoyed to share with visitiors.
