Aerial footage of the Theewaterskloof Dam captures the different stages of the Cape's three-year drought from November 2016 to March 2018. 

The footage was filmed by Aerial Events, whose pilot Stephan Myburgh was among those who flew over the dam.

Myburgh describes the last two years as especially "overwhelming in a sad and also scary way..."

"Having aerial views of the dam gives a clear perspective of what reality is," he adds.
