The following article was placed in the Phalaborwa Herald 01/10/2009

Ndondoni dam dalk taboe
Een van die gewildste hengel-plekke in die omgewing gaan in alle waarskynlikheid binnekort taboe wees vir alle motorbote.
Die Departement van natuubewaring het Vrydag aangekondig dat hulle indringende stappe oorweeg om die toenemende druk op die Ndondonidam dam naby Malamulele oorweeg en die verbied van alle bote met enjins skyn 'n logiesee eerste stap te wees.
Die LETABA HERALD het sowat drie maande gelede berig dat hengelaars groot getalle vis by die dam vang en dat hoë boetes teen hengelaars wat die kwota oorskrei oorweeg word.
Dit het,skynbaar geen uitwerking gehad nie en Vrydag het Natuurbewaring bevestig dat hulle na nuwe maatreels kyk om die dam se krimpende getal vis te bewaar.
Volgens die depadement het amptenare bevestig dat booteienaars die groot sondebokke is en daarom is hulle vas van plan om alle bote met enjins op die dam te verbied.
Dit gaan daartoe lei dat die gewildste hengeldam in die omgewing vir booteienaars taboe is. Die hengelklubs van Tzaneen, Letsitele, Phalabowa en Hoedspruit het baie gereeld ook hengel-kompetisies op die dam aangebied.
Indien die dam vir bote gesluit word gaan dit ook dramatiese gevolge hê vir die toenemende qetal plaaslike belegers wat erwe langs die dam vir 'n lang termyn huur. Daar is reeds verskeie huise en naweek-huise Langs die dam oewer gebou en sommige belegers het baie kapitaal in ontwikkeling langs die dam belê.
Henqelaars met wie die HERALD gepraat het,is van mening dat Natuur bewaaring die kat aan die stert beet het. Volgens hulle is nette wat die plaaslike bevolking vir hengel in die dam gebruik die groot problem. Alle groottes vis word in massa hierin gevang en dit lei tot uitwissing van toekomstige teel vis.
Voorts wys hulle daarop dat swartbaar 'n indringer-vis in alle plaaslike waters is en dat hulle 'n baie negatiewe uitwerking op kurper getalle en ander inheemse vis het.
Hulle voorstel is dus dat die nette beheer word en dat hengelaars angemoedig moet word om swartbaar te vang.
Volgens hulle het boot-heneglaars 'n onbeduidende uitwerking op visgetalle Die enkele hengelaars wat wel kwotas oorskrei behoort swaar beboet te word en behoort by alle damme onder natuurbewaring se beheer verbied te word.
Deur alle bote egter die dam te verbied gaan 'n negatiewe uitwerking op die ekonomie in die onmiddellike omgewing van die dam hê en gaan niks doen om die kwynendde vis getalle te beperk nie


It is unfortunately in afrikaans

For those that do not know about Nandoni (which I think is very few), it is the dam in limpopo where the BETT final was held, its an awesome dam and some huge bags was taken in the final.

Unfortunately it seems that the nature conservation people has got their story wrong

Just something interesting. Here is a qoute from a reportback by Barbless
Barbless Wrote:It’s a great dam but far and I hate to think it but don’t see a future for the dam, from the bridge up towards the river the locals are raping it, I have fished many dams in SA and have never seen so many gill nets in one dam, really hope someone could take note and do something.

From my experience going to the dam quite often I've found that the kurper fishermen fishing at the trees could be the problem as they keep everything minute to large.

As for bass fishermen ruining the dam it's NOT BLOODY LIKELY !!!

And that's not to mention the locals with gill nets - another story on it's own

That's my 5c worth !!

Still waiting for an extremist boeremag dude, to develop a solution for this on going problem. I mean with modern technology in genetics and chemical weapons etc. Surely something can be done? I mean no one would know until it was to late? And then everyone would be happy! :blue-evil:

Was going to start a new topic but seeing that theres already one on this dam I'll just continue in this one.

We are going up to Nottingham in Zim during September 2010 and seeing that a large part of the trip is throug Limpopo we were considering spending a day at Nandoni either on the way there or back. Now this is where I need some info. Like:

Wherer is the dam? Proximity to closest town. Is it off the beaten track bearing in mind that we travel through Pieterburg, Louis Trichardt and Musina to get to the border.

Facilities available? Camping, Chalets, Nothing?

Safety? Is it safe to leave your vehicle whilst you fish or will we need a car guard?

I saw on ESA last night that they stayed at a place that looked quite jacked up. Does anyone have contact details for the lodge.

Thanx in advance for your assistance.

Its a awesome dam. Have been there four times.
Its about 80km straight east from Louis trighardt. Its tar road all the way up to the turn of to the campsite, it goes slow however because its through AFRICA!! . The campsite is Nice and very save. You can camp, or there is a option of a bungalo type thing where you basically just bring your own things to sleep under. I thin there is some chalets as well.
The campsites all have lectric and there are good ablution facilities.
The dirt road can be a bit long, not sure, but not more than 5-8km.

I dont have any numbers..sorry

Dankie boet...!!!

Is there a shortcut to Musina from there or would we have to go back to Louis Trichardt?

I dont know if there is a road to Musina. But it is a hectic tar road for me (because of all the taxis and stuff) maybe try and phone some locals. Sms a friend that might have the campsites number. Will let you know. I had the gps co-ord of the turnoff as well, but then my phone got stolen :blue-evil: will try to get that as well.

Hawkeye..here is some reportbacks. Ill give you everything I know, but I dont know it that well yet so might misslead you.

It would be best to go back the way you came in and get back onto the N1. I use the turn of about 2km outside louis Trichardt on the polokwane side. Go until you get Elm there is a lot of taxi's at that intersection and a spar on right. At that intersection turn left and head up towards dam. +- 80km
