Hippo Creek is situated on the farm Seekoeifontein that is approximately 300 Hectares in extent and was previously utilized as a cattle ranch and brick manufacturing factory. Currently, it accommodates Hippo Creek and its wild life, surrounded by many hills with varying topography. The ranges have all been established along a valley, orientated south and traversing from east to west for approximately 1 km in length. Its south orientation ensures that at no stage shooting will be affected by the sun, as the sun will always be from the north.

Fly fishing for the illusive South African yellow fish is most popular and is available all along the Vaal River. If fly fishing is your passion, then we suggest a whole day be put aside for the adventure. On special request, trolling for South African Cat fish can be arranged, especially during this part of the year when they are in abundance.
The Vaal River flows through rapids and white water rafting and canoeing on these parts of the river is a great pastime!
Travelling through the Vredefort Dome is a must and quite spectacular. The Dome which resulted from a massive meteorite hit; can also be experienced on foot hiking or a paddling route. On route back, a stopover to Parys is recommended to savour several local roadside restaurants and experience true South African cuisine and hospitality.
