On the banks of the Vaal River, at ‘Wag-n-Bietjie’ Ecofarm, you can become one with nature! This lovely place is located in the Freestate, on a cattle farm, in the Koedoesdraai Conservancy. Enjoy the sight of unique wildlife like aardvark, steenbok, waterbok, and many others on the farm. Bird watchers get to enjoy looking for bird species like the Martial Eagle, Goliath Heron, Fish Eagle, and many more.
As one of the founding members of the Orange Vaal River Yellowfish Conservation and Management Association, ‘Wag-n-Bietjie’, strictly practice Catch-and-Release fishing. The 15km of prime fishing water with lots of riffles and rapids, is a fly-fisherman’s dream come true.
The accommodation available on the premises are chalets, campsites and caravan sites. The chalets each have their own unique name and personality.
