The low water Bridge was at a stage 300mm high,which resulted that only vehicles with high clearance can go through, some of the vegetation(reeds)were remove to increase the flow of the water.
After this has been done the stream flow is normal again.

The disturbance also attracted these baboons.

Augrabies is at the moment very dry,so don't be fooled by the area in which this tortoise is hanging around.
I were busy photographing some plants and have find 12 or more species in just a small area, this is also part in an area where water are flowing.
