Activities at Bonnievale River Lodge
There is a lot to do at the lodge; enjoy fishing, swimming in the river, bird watching or just chilling under the trees. Feel free to bring canoes, tubes, lilos or anything that floats and meander your way down the river.
There are lots of fish in the river and fishing is purely on a catch and release basis. Bass, Carp and Barbel are the predominant fish. A lightweight medium size rod with a mixture of lures, earthworms and mielie bomb would be a good start.
