Oom Piet Takes Our Group for a Sunset Tour

Oom Piet takes our group for a sunset tour. Bailing into his bakkie, we drive up the high reaches of the valley to get a wonderful view over the valley floor and river catchment system. Oom Piet has committed his farm to a conservation project to restore the natural river catchment flow and rehabilitate the Spekboom forest. A wise man who thinks of his and his children’s future, Piet no longer farms sheep. He has witnessed how the grazing patterns of poorly managed livestock have denuded the land and disturbed the natural cycles. Instead he is pioneering the idea of farming water to secure the region’s future
