 Two issues are clearly of concern to fans and would be tourists. The one is the perennial "security" issue and the other is the increasing cost of visiting South Africa during the World Cup.

There is not much that any of us can do regarding security except hope that the South African Authorities have done their homework. The world's focus is on South Africa and the last thing we need is any form of civil unrest as seen in Balfour last week or any high profile criminal incidents. We unfortunately, are going to be mere spectators in this regard

It's an event that only happens now and again so it may just be the right time to visit the quaint village of Gariep and view this incredible mass of water flowing over the Dam Wall.

The Orange River flows through Gariep and then on to the van der Kloof Dam near Petrusville and Orania. The van der Kloof Dam is almost 97% full today and will probably reach full capacity by 13th February. From there the Orange flows past
