The Thendela Village, found in the heart of the Kamberg Valley KwaZulu Natal MidIands, is set amidst a striking postcard setting of undulating hills, primitive farmlands and characteristic rural dwellings. The picturesque Mooi River, home to wild spawned brown trout, winds its way through the village nestled in the mountainous valley.
A unique fly fishing project that has sparked great enthusiasm within a few avid local anglers is underway. It is intended to offer a different recreational element to the simplistic lifestyle of the Thendela people, and a small injection of eco-tourism along with environmental awareness and river rehabilitation for this stretch of the Mooi River.
Managed by the community itself, guided and non-guided fly fishing is now open to day-visitors.
