Witels River

Good morning all,

I am trying to find some information on the Witels river.
I am an avid fly fisherman and would like to hike up into the Witels river (not do the entire kloof loop) to do some fishing for the elusive cape brown trout - perhaps for 2 or 3 days in and out.

I am struggling to find information as to access rights. It seems that the Zuurberg area is under the control of the UCT mountain and skiing club, however, I would not necessarily be interested to do the entire kloofing hike as stipulated on their site. I would merely like to hike up from the Ceres side and camp and fish next to the river for 2 or 3 days.

Does anybody know if this would be possible? Would I need to be a member of the UCT club or do they allow non-members?

Any help would be appreciated!


Hi @Bob77 ,

I think the best would be to contact the current convenor at UCT, Emily. She will either be able to help or put you through to the most relevant person. Contact details at the following link: Zuurberg Property | Mountain and Ski.
