Abstract: In this report available historical information on Olifants estuary and abiotic and biotic characteristics found in the estuary are presented. The Olifants River system was explored early in the colonization of the Cape by European settlers. This estuary is in an almost pristine state and human activity in the area has had little impact on it. In fact the sole activity that has a direct effect is fishing and even this is on a small scale. At present, activities in the catchment probably have a greater effect on the estuary than those in its immediate environs.
