Spectators gathered at the Western Cape spot – which connects Oudsthoorn with Mossel Bay on the Garden Route – to watch the waterfalls that they have been praying for, during one of the country’s worst droughts.

Residents have been posting messages of gratitude since Friday when the rains swept in.

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has issued a warning for heavy rain and localised flooding along the Western Cape’s south coast today, Sunday 19 January 2020.


Scattered downpours may be expected early morning and especially in the late afternoon and evening; otherwise, expect very windy conditions, 54 km/h E, with possible wind gusts of up to 81 km/h and considerable cloudiness,” said SAWS.

There were also great scenes at Groot Bak River in the Mossel Bay Municipality:

The water is running towards Wolwedans Dam and will hopefully help fill up the dam, which is currently less than half full.

Groot Brak rivier. Water loop na die Wolwedans dam. Tans 43 persent vol. Reën nog heerlik hier.
