Watch this special video by Heinrich Stofberg who managed to capture on camera the very moment the Matlabas River started to fill up.
Stofberg posted the footage to Vimeo saying it shows how "life returns to Matlabas". "After the worst drought this country has seen in many years, every drop of water is precious," he says. "Many rivers are nothing but dry sandy causeways crisscrossing through the landscape.
"The land is awaiting the return of the water with angst. And then, one day, the call is answered."
