Orange River basin map.svg
The course and watershed of the Orange River, Caledon River and Vaal River. This map shows a conservative border for the watershed. Specifically, the Kalahari basin is excluded, as some sources say it is endorheic.[2] Some other sources using computational methods show a basin which includes parts of Botswana (and hence of the Kalahari).[3]
