The community area has over 7kms of the Mooi River meandering through this tribal land which is home to wild spawned brown trout. The Thendela stretch is relatively high up in the system, the source being in the mKomazi Nature Reserve bordering the Mountainous Kingdom of Lesotho.
This section offers community managed river beats and local fishing guides. Access is easy for bank fishing or river wading amidst the primitive huts and local Nguni cows. Water clarity can be clear most of the time whilst fish take cover in the undercuts and deeper runs.
