    Default Boating- Where to go?

    Hi All,
    Where can I go boating these days close to Pretoria? Sounds like Bronkhorstpruit also has issues with Hyacinte.
    Anyone know what the situation there is?

    Smiles,

    Rust de Winter is not too far from PTA, and it is clean, apart from the crocs, it is a nice dam. No Informal settlements nearby.

    alternatives:
    Roodekop - Brits
    Roodeplaat

    Be careful of Rodekopjies near Brits if you're not launching at an established or known site and you do not know the dam.

    There are lots of rocks in the water at various places and "local knowledge" is the only way to launch safely.

    Also bear in mind that there is a bit of a crime issue on the Eastern side as a result of the informal settlements. The Western side is safer.
