THE TALE OF TWO RIVERS

THE BOESMANS RIVER IS THE 2ND LONGEST NAVIGABLE RIVER IN SOUTH AFRICA

Kenton On Sea is hugged by two rivers – the Boesmans on the west, and the Kariega on the east. This unique situation attracted the first settlers to the area for their annual holiday. Those were the days of the oxwagon and tents. The British settlers chose Kenton and the Afrikaner farmers camped on the Boesmans side. Many stories are told of the interactions between these two communties. Young men seeing a business opportunity by rowing house wives across the Boesmans River for their weekly shopping, as the only shops were on the Boesmans side. It included a small grocer, a butcher and a bottle store. Small wooden structures became permanent fixtures and families started a yearly ritual of vacationing in the area. Now the river banks are dotted with luxurious homes and cozy bed & breakfasts.
