Hi
Can anyone tell me how the Falls are looking at the moment. Have you had much water recently? Thinking of visiting in March before KTP.
Thanks for any advice.

Hi Lindah,

At this stage the river level is not very high.

But anything could still happen. :thumbs_up:

Though the river level is not depended in how much rain we had in the region, but rather how much rain has fallen in the Vaal River catchment area.

Today the flow is at 68 000 cumecs, fluctuating, but like Lion queen said lets hope for more rain in the catchment area. :thumbs_up:
