There is a limpid quality to the air in this forgotten little corner of the Eastern Cape, 22 km from Grahamstown where the Blaauwkrantz Pool is situated. This tranquil pool, sparkling in the sunlight, is a place of pilgrimage, of ghosts, a spiritual domain lying there brooding quiet and sombre. The one side of the pool consists of a jagged krantz steep and precipitous with ledges that protrude at intervals. The People of the River reside here, their spiritual powers are unlimited and have no boundaries. Who are they? Make your peace with them. Become acquainted with the endangered East Cape Rocky and its struggle for survival. Will you see the 'Blaauw” in Blaauwkrantz? Discover the intriguing interactions and reliance of many organisms on this beautiful pool. Swim, dive off the cliff, tube or simply paddle in the water. Spend the day and enjoy Bush Cuisine
