Koppies Dam Nature Reserve


Koppies Dam Nature Reserve, which lies on the Highveld of the Northern Free State and extends over an area of 4 300 ha, provides a heaven for anglers. The vegetation consists predominantly of mixed grassveld and dense thickets of sweet thorn trees with willow trees along the Renoster River.

White rhino together with other species of wildlife, are often encountered and fortunate visitors may spot the large herd of buffalo. Many bird species, including several waterfowl varieties, inhabit this nature reserve.

The dam is an angler's dream come true with yellowfish, barbell, mudfish and carp taken in abundance. Water sports like windsurfing, sailing, and skiing are very popular. Along the shores of the dam reed and thatch shelters with braai facilities are available to visitors. The shady picnic area, complete with braai facilities, along the Renoster River, is a beautiful retreat.
