The Bloemhof Dam is one of the largest dams in South Africa, covering an area of some 25 000 ha and reaching over 100 km upstream from the dam wall. The dam is one of the most popular angling sites in South Africa.

The Barberspan Bird Sanctuary is a huge 2000 ha body of water located between Delareyville and Sannieshof. Certain areas on the pans are designated for anglers to enjoy excellent fishing opportunities for carp, barbel and yellowfish.

The Vaalkop Dam is situated 54 km north of Brits, near Beestekraal and north-east of Rustenburg, in typical broken bushveld country. It is renowned as both an anglers and bird watching destination. Fish species include carp and yellowfish which are plentiful, making Vaalkop a particularly attractive angling destination.


There is no better way to experience wild places than to put your boots on and put your feet on the ground, one in front of the other.

We have so many wonderful, fantastically scenic hiking trails – here we provide a taste of only a few among those on offer.


For an ultimate bush experience, the North West offers an unforgettable hunting safari. Hunters have an in-depth knowledge of the bush and can offer you an unique experience not easily to be found anywhere else.
