Situated on Roodeplaat dam this is a lovely angling resort suited for the whole family. There are around 30 Caravan stands and a few wooden cabins. You are aloud 6 people and two vehicles per caravan stand @ R200 per night. The stands are a bit on the small side and I would not suggest more than four rods per stand, although it is possible with some effort to fish six rods.
There is a pool on the premises with a small shop where you can buy your day to day requirements. A Spar is also located about 1.5Km from the resort. The resort is under new management and a lot of money and effort is spent to keep the resort neat and tidy. They have a few staff members that clean the unwanted hyacinth out and this makes for a pleasant angling experience.
Some nice carp have been landed at Anglersfreind and it is not uncommon to get stuck into double figure carp as they do frequent these waters quite often.
