The Kromme River


Looking upriver, the Kromme forms a floodplain that has wonderful wetland flowers at certain times of the year. As available property gets scarcer in St Francis (which is built on the bank of the Kromme) more people are starting to build along the banks upriver. Given the chequered history of South African rivers when it comes to flooding, these guys are taking quite a chance!

What a beautiful landscape!


What you say about building in areas prone to flooding is worrying...

In the UK we have been building on floodplains for several years and recently have started to learn the perils of so doing.

This is great! I'm so thrilled that I found your blogs. I spent many happy holidays and weekends on the Kromme as a kid. It isn't often I see something of that area on the web. Thank you!
