Clear your mind by spending some time Canoeing at Intundla

The best thing about canoeing at Intundla is that once you push yourself off from the grassy banks, you are completely free to relax. There are no interferences from the outside world (make sure you leave your cell phone in your room), no more demands, you are ‘out of reach’. Making canoeing the ideal solution when you want to get away, for a short while, from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Let the stress go and allow your mind to unwind

Canoeing allows you to go at your own speed as slow as you like or to push yourself for a few sprints. Which is good for the blood flow and general mental health. Gliding over the glassy water, focusing on nothing but the light lapping of the water against the hull and the gurgling of the paddle as it is drawn through the water, lets your mind relax in a way that is not un-similar to meditation. The freedom and exhilaration that comes from gliding through the water can be quite refreshing.
Share the experience with your friends and family
The dam at Intundla has several canoes available for use. You can play in the dam with friends or take a scenic trip to get a little workout and to explore the beauty of your surroundings. If you have some fishing gear drop a line and see if you can entice a black bass or two to take the bait. Read more: Fishing for Bass at Intundla

To have a fun time canoeing, you should be comfortable and prepared. Here are some tips to help you get started:
• Wear light clothing and possibly a comfortable bathing suit in case you get splashed or wet.
• Get a hat to stay cool and to protect you from the sun.
• Make sure that you wear shoes that don’t come off easily. If you would like to wear sandals or flip-flops, make sure they can be secured in the back.
• Bring a change of clothes with you so that you have dry clothes to slip into when you leave the river.
• Tie down anything that you don’t want to lose. This will ensure that you don’t lose anything if the canoe happens to tip over.
• Check the canoe before getting it into water to make sure there are no holes or any other signs of damage.
• Make sure that you are in possession of flotation devices and other important gear before getting on the water.
• Load the canoe properly. Keeping the weight low and evenly distributed will allow for maximum manoeuvrability on the water.

Canoeing can be a very rewarding and relaxing experience; especially when you are with good friends. If you are planning on doing this activity, taking precautions will ensure that you have a safe, fun, and comfortable time.

What to do at Intundla

What to do at Intundla Black Bass Fishing at its Best

What to do at Intundla besides the obvious which is, of course, a lot of relaxation!

If you haven't visited Intundla yet, then what you need to know is that the Lodge is built around a magnificently beautiful dam. This dam is truly something to behold and looks different every single day. So for one thing, you will never get tired of the views at Intundla, from your room, from the pool and bar area next to the dam, or from the exquisite Bush Spa. But the dam isn't only for viewing and once you get hooked on the fishing... (mind the pun)

Black Bass Fishing at Intundla What a Catch!

Think about those lazy summer days, drink in hand, just taking life easy. Well, we know just how to make that happen for you, and we can do even better than that. We'll also give you a helping hand (not literally) with your fishing.

Here are some tips we've picked up from some very (and some not so) experienced fisherman. Promise no fishing stories!

Firstly get the wind on your face. Bass always swim with the current, so it’s better for them to find your bait before they find your boat. (or canoes are excellent for this job)

Blunt hooks won't cut it because Bass are boney jawed devils.

Make sure your worms have had a beating and they'd be more likely to be spotted as bait for the Bass, but leave a little fight in them to work as proper ambush material.

Don't give up! Hey sometimes you're in the right spot, with perfect bait, just keep at it!

We have some awesome Holiday Weekend Specials but Book Now or this might just be the ONE that got away!
