What amazing pictures :shock: When we stood on the high-water bridge over the Olifants on 6 February it was really hard to imagine that the river rose so high - actually mind-boggling!!

Naomi and Joep, thanks so much for sharing these, somewhat devastating, photos with us! :big_eyes:

The mind boggles at the severity of the damage to the man-made structures by Mother Nature.

Thank you Naomi and Joep for the pictures.

Can't trust my eyes that the Olifants bridge we crossed few months ago is in such sorry state :(
