Boating is a popular sport – with good reason. South Africa has beautiful weather and beautiful dams and oceans to enjoy. Here are our top picks:
Jozini Dam, Kwazulu-Natal
This dam close to Mkuze is often compared to the Kariba, with excellent tigerfishing for the enthusiast. In addition, there are excellent game drives in the area. Find accommodation here.
The Sunday’s River, Eastern Cape
Yes, you can absolutely go boating here – boats can travel about 6kms up river and there is gorgeous bird and wild life to observe along the way. Find a holiday home to rent here.
The Clanwilliam Dam, Western Cape
The most popular destination for waterskiing, jetskiing and fishing in the Western Cape. This tiny town offers it all, with regular activities on the dam. Stay in a hotel or get access to the water via a private farm/resort. It’s bliss.
L’Agulhas, Western Cape
The Southern most tip of Africa is also the end point of the world’s most dangerous rubber duck race – if you are brave enough to brave the waves, it makes for an adrenaline-packed adventure.
