Does anybody know where the swimming hole is between Kromrivier campsite and Truitjieskraal (on the way to Truitjieskraal)
GPS coordinates on the gated road would be nice.
Cheers
Cormac

See attached Google Earth image below where I have marked the Truitjies turnoff, and the big pool and the dam wall.
You either drive past the Truitjies turnoff until you get to the old track off left, that can be followed on foot or in a Tank to get to close to the pool, or you walk down a vague gully/old watercourse opposite Truitjies turnoff to get to the dam wall, and then go down some pothole slabs in the river, then out onto the North bank and wiggle through the bush to get to the pool.

*Note that the pool requires a Cape Nature permit just like Truitjies does.
