The settlement lies some 40 km east-north-east of Colesberg and 43 km west-north-west of Venterstad, on the southern bank of the Orange River, just below the Gariep Dam. Afrikaans for Norval’s ferry, it is named after an enterprising Scot who constructed a ferry here in 1848.
The first bridge across the Orange River was built in 1889. The bridge was blown up during the Second Boer War. There was also a large concentration camp for Afrikaner women and children at Norvalspont during the Second Boer War.
