Take the forest drive to Gubu Dam, set in a beautiful valley ringed by trees at the foot of Mount Kubusie. The crystal clear water abounds with rainbow and brown trout and is the home of countless waterfowl.

Gubu Dam has a well maintained campsite with clean ablutions. Pinic spots and braai areas are very popular in the summer months with day visitors.

The trout fisherman may enjoy this sport after making contact with the Stutterheim Trout Fishing Club and obtaining the necessary permits.

At the North East end of the Dam is the Gubu Dam Caravan Park which has been established by the Department of Forestry. There are ample camping sites and there isn't a facility for pre-booking. It is set in Idyllic surroundings amongst the trees; the walks in the forest from there are gentle and beautiful.

Contact Rob Scott from The Shire Eco Lodge on 072 364 8077 to purchase a fly fishing license.
