Dirk & Lorita Odendaal

Entrance  - gate off the R58;         S 30° 57’ 17.84”        E 27° 27’ 33.76”

Upstream boundary;                     S 30° 55’ 08.91”        E 27° 27’ 54.32”

Situated opposite “Waterval” on the Kraai where the R58 crosses between Barkly East and Lady Grey. Take R58 over bridge headed towards Lady Grey. A few hundred meters after crossing the Kraai there is a warning sign on your left and almost immediately thereafter a gate on the right.  Enter and follow the path down through the field toward the river (the track zig-zags across the field.) Park next to a small rondawel and fish upstream on the left (western) bank.  One may also fish downstream below the bridge but the exciting water is upstream.


The Kraai River at Donny Brook – note the log deposited on top of the big rock, then compare the height to the height of the fisherman – the Kraai River can and does get very cross
