Back to the Karoo

I love the change in landscape as one drives from the lush green coastal landscape into the dry rugged Karoo. See if you can notice the differences?......

Beervlei Dam just outside Willowmore - Eastern Cape.

It's shocking and scary to see how low the water level is. In fact one would never guess that this was / is a dam!  All that's left of it is a pond that's surrounded by a massive wall!

You can actually see where the water level once was!!!!


  1. Wow Riekie it is really sad to see the dam so low, is there an eerie silence around there as the dam bed mourns its loss. Good rains is what we Andy

  2. Hi Andy! Thankyou so much for reading my blog! Yes, there is an eerie silence there. It's very sad actually! Will keep you updated!Take care. x
