Description

Dating back to 1914, the Malgas Pont is the oldest hand drawn pont of its kind in South Africa, offering a safe crossing for vehicles over the Breede River. Situated in Maglas (formeraly Malagas) just 30 minutes from Swellendam in the Western Cape, the pontoon is a large floating barge operated by two men using harness and a pulley system to draw the across to the other side. If you ask nicely, you may even get to have a go yourself! The pont can take a maximum of 3 cars or 10 tons of cargo at a time.
