Pictures of the river, which is the lifeblood of 5 million people, keep rolling in as the sun continues to shine.
Ross and Pam Haynes headed to the Howick Falls to see them in all their glory
Then admired the beautiful patterns water overflowing from Midmar create,
and around to the other side of the dam on the Petrusstroom road where the river runs into the top of Midmar.
Through the suburbs (a lovely public walking path runs alongside the river here)
Over the falls and into the gorge of the Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve
Bart Fokkens took this picture: “We playing on da Mngeni for the next few days. Here at Muddymar till Sunday sailing Xmas regatta”
Dieter Setz sent in this picture taken looking upstream at Wakefield Farm, upper Dargle
and another looking downstream.
“This is a pic from the area it runs through between Wakefield and Furth. End of next year you will actually be able to see the river, as one of my tasks for the coming year is to clear the river of all wattle on our side.” he added.

Eidin Griffin took this photo of the river along the Petrustroom road where Penny did a water study with local school kids. “I love the two types of pathways reflected in this pic.”
She also sent in this one of the weir just above Corrie Lynn School.
Nikki Brighton photographed the Mngeni disappearing over the waterfall in Dargle.
Hard to believe the river walk team picnicked in the pool below in May – there was just a trickle coming over then.
