I recently visited my old field site at Augrabies Falls National Park, in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The park is situated on the Orange River, not too far from the border with Namibia. I was in for a bit of a shock. The river was in flood and at its highest since the 1988 floods. It took me about 10 minutes to figure out the location of my study site! The good news is that I still saw lots of lizards in nearby rocks, but no telling how many were forced to learn rafting.
