Marico Oog Natural Pond
What makes the Marico Oog so exquisite is the fact that the water is crystal clear and the visibility is often in excess of 20 meters. The pool is covered by floating water lilies with stems that trail away lazily to the bottom. The bottom of the pool is covered with a broad-leaved plant that gives the impression of swimming over a lush green carpet. The water is relatively cold but seldom drops below 18 degrees Celsius. In summer the water temperature can rise up to 24 degrees Celsius for a very comfortable dive. Various species of fish are found hiding amongst the stems of the water lilies, water eels, bass, kurper and the Marico ‘gillemientjie’.
