A CANOEIST from Windhoek took advantage of flooding rivers in the capital to go for a thrilling trip down the Klein Windhoek River.
The man videotaped his journey down the raging river with a camera mounted on his helmet and was the source of delight for commuters stranded at river crossings.
The Avis Dam further up the river filled up quickly as heavy rains continued over Namibia on Monday afternoon.
The floodgates of the dam are expected to open automatically when the dam reaches capacity, which means that the Klein Windhoek River might suddenly flood again.
Residents of Windhoek have been warned to take the necessary precautions as flash floods might also occur elsewhere in the city.
