Go bass fishing in Africa

You are here > Countries > South Africa > Mpumalanga



The North Eastern province of Mpumalanga (previously the Eastern Transvaal) has a large number of Largemouth Bass waters, probably the highest number in the country.

A region of great contrast, you will find it all in Mpumalanga, from the industrialised West, cool mountain streams filled with Rainbow Trout around Dullstroom and sweltering African bush in the lowveld bordering the Kruger National Park and Mozambique.

The highveld areas, fairly close to the Gauteng metropolitan area consist of cooler impoundments such as Witbank Dam, the lowveld region with its year round warm climate produces the really big Bass in dams like Driekoppies and Injaka.

There are a great many smaller lakes in this fascinating province, watch this space as Go Bassing expands to cover them all.
