Lit­tle Long Creek

SA Bass - - >> Sa Bass -

For a lit­tle bit of heaven, on the out­skirts of the Drak­ens­berg, and only 2½ hours’ drive from Jo­han­nes­burg, come to Lit­tle Long Creek. A beau­ti­ful 7 hectare dam is sit­u­ated in front of the chalet. Apart from be­ing stocked with bass, yel­low fish and trout, the dam lends it­self to wa­ter sports such as swim­ming, wind surf­ing, canoeing and kite ski­ing.

A va­ri­ety of bird species are also avail­able in the hunt­ing sea­son. These in­clude guinea fowl, red­wing fran­colin, swain­son’s fran­colin, Egyp­tian geese and the yel­low billed duck.

A lot of work was put in to turn the iso­lated chalet into a well equipped and peace­ful home away from home. It is clean and spa­cious and the in­te­rior and ex­te­rior braai (bar­beque) ar­eas cater for all sorts of weather. The fully fur­nished chalet is equipped with two bath­rooms and sleeps six peo­ple. The ad­ja­cent ron­dawel has room for two peo­ple.

Lit­tle Long Creek’s great new ad­di­tion on the banks of the Ko­man­dospruit is a self-cater­ing chalet, with 3 bed­rooms (pax 6), 2 bath­rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, lounge with a fire place, and to round it all off - an amaz­ing Rhode­sian Teak deck with braai fa­cil­i­ties over­look­ing the run­ning wa­ter.

The 4km stream with its three weirs makes for won­der­ful sight­see­ing and leads to the peren­nial Kom­man­dospruit with its indige­nous yel­low fish, which are es­pe­cially ac­tive from Jan­uary to April.
