This is something out of a story book. The Malgas Pont, as it is known is famous as the only hand-drawn pont, and the last of its kind, in South Africa. Guys harnessed, pulling the ferry across the river from six to six. If you’re in the area it’s well worth the experience and the kids will enjoy it.
