Not only does the little farming town of Bloemhof (flower capital or court) lie on the Vaal River, it also rests right up against a large dam known as the Bloemhof Dam - a major fisherman's paradise, especially for carp and fish cat, and somewhere you can definitely see a number of antelope and at least 250 species of bird.

 

The Bloemhof Dam, which hosts an annual Bonanza Fishing Competition, is also the site of paddling, sailing or simply relaxing, whilst further upstream of here there is yet another dam, the Wolwespruit dam which, although smaller, has a large supply of indigenous yellow fish.

 

Closer to the Dome conservancy (also known as Vredefort Dome) a white-water rafting trip is a wonderfully gentle way to experience the water.

Bloemhof serves as an ideal stopover whilst holidaying in the North West, particularly if your emphasis is on outdoor adventure.

Not far from here is the SA Lombard Game Reserve where you can see the black wildebeest, further north but remaining with the North West, is Wondergat - a sink hole with steep sides that serves as a fantastic dive site, and further still there is Sun City, Vredefort Dam, Hartbeespoort Dam and the Pilanesberg National Park.
