    Default Sterkfontein Dam Safety

    Hi guys going to be at sterkfontein for a couple of days at begining of December and will be staying at the nature reserves chalets.
    Was wondering how safe the area is as I will be taking my wife with. Is it fine to leave her alone during the day while I go fishing?
    Wont have a boat so anybody know how the fishing is around the chalets?Dont mind hiking a bit to get a fish either.

    She will be fine on her own,bar nothing much to do.
    The fishing around there is ok if you walk,and walk and walk.Basically find the fish.
    Enjoy.Hope you dont get stampeded by all the anglers that time of year

    She wil be fine, just make sure she takes a lot to occupy her time, with the distances you will be walking you will want to have the whole day available to yourself...

    Teach her to tie flies for you. Or better still teach her to fish

    Or better yet, teach her how to light the fire, marinade the fillet, and crack open your cold one just in time for your return 😉

    No problem with safety.
    Just watch out for the bad storms that comes across the dam this time of the year.
    2nd most dangerous dam in South Africa.

    Will be there between xmas and New Year. Staying in a chalet at the parks board.
