Brandfontein water

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

It is interesting to note that two major currents, the warm Mozambique to the east and the cold Benguela to the west, whichs enfolds Africa on a large scale, has such a huge influence on such a small scale !

7km east of the southernmost tip of Africa is the popular summer holiday seaside town of Struisbaai with lovely water temperatures. Move along 14km west of the southermost tip, to this place and one is unable to spend more than a minute or so with one's feet in the water, due to the cold !
