Special offer from Jacana Media to all the followers of the SA Ramsar project !!!

River of Gold is the story of South Africa’s most iconic river, described by Rudyard Kipling as the ‘great, grey, green, greasy Limpopo all set about with fever trees’.This book could never have come out at a more appropriate time given, a) the drought facing the country and b) the daily media reports about diminishing water and the sensitive issues surrounding collapsing infrastructure and unacceptable levels of sewerage entering our river systems.

River of Gold is not about pointing fingers but strives rather to draw attention to rivers, wetlands and mountain catchments not just for South Africa’s sake but also for that of neighbouring countries who share this river and its far flung tributaries . For the first time, this publication reveals the extradionary diversity and magnificence of this river and is well stated by Dr John ledger in his Afterword, who reminds us we all bear a responsibility. This book reminds us that a nasty molecule cast carelessly into a little stream in Doornfontein could kill a fish at Xai Xai and deprive a family of its sustenance. We need to think about that deeply, and care about all our little streams”.
