Considered very good. Cast a line in the water and stand a chance of catching Steenbras, Cob, Spotted Grunter and Cape Stumpnose among others.

Please be sure to stick to guidlines and regulations set by the Western Cape Government.


Glorious swimming in this tidal river.

The King swing on the river bank provides hours of fun for the adventurous. Swing out over the river and plop into the water or swing back again.
