ELEPHANT

ELEPHANT, 2007, lightjet photographic print, 59.4 X 84cm

Woodbridge island, Start of Rietvlei nature reserve, Milnerton.

In July, Jourdain went ashore at Rietvlei just to the north of Milnerton on the road to Blaauwbergstrand, across Table Bay from Cape Town. He wrote:

“It is to be understood that this river is a mile (say 1.6 km) from the place where the ships doe water; that beinge very fresh and good, proceedings from divers springs which cometh from the mountaynes. In this journey up the river we saw many estreges and footings of elephants, much fish and fowle, etc….”

-John Jourdain.1608. Before van Riebeeck. Caller at South Africa from 1488 to 1652
