Elgro River Lodge

Welcome to the best fly fishing water for yellows on the Vaal. We offer about 20 km of pristine fly fishing water for small and large mouth yellow fish. Take the stumble out of the Vaal and do one of our float & fly trips or you can enjoy the streams around the lodge and catch that elusive yellow.

A basic Fly Fishing Shop is available at the lodge. Fly fishing trips can also be organized with experienced guides, these trips must however be booked in advance.

For the last 15 years the Elgro River Lodge was the proud host of the Bell’s Fly Fishing Festival.

Away from the hustle and bustle of business, the Elgro River Lodge is the true African experience situated on a bend of unexpected beauty on the Vaal River, 30 km from Potchefstroom.

The Lodge has 9 beautiful self-catering riverside units, fully equipped, and with access to a swimming pool, to make your breakaway as personal and effort free as possible.

Other activities include Game drives, Mampoer tastings, River rafting, Bird watching, Mountain biking, Fly fishing, 3D Traditional Archery, Team building events and much more.
