Wagendrift Dam Public Resort KZN Wildlife

The information and related images should be verified with the relevant resort beforehand.

The scenic Wagendrift Nature Reserve surrounds the Wagendrift Dam and is situated just off the main N3 highway near Estcourt. Boating and fishing are the primary guest activities around the dam, and a relaxed three kilometre self-guided trail winds along the Bushmans River providing opportunity to observe the wildlife and bird life of the reserve.

Scaly, bluegill, bass, carp, eel and the occasional trout are caught in the dam by keen freshwater fishermen. The easy three kilometre self-guided Furrow Trail follows the course of an old irrigation furrow, built in 1903 and provides exciting game viewing opportunities.
