Follow the coordinates 25º 56’ 789”S,  29º 16’ 080”E to one of the Cultural Heartland’s best kept secrets. The road will take you to a secluded bay on the banks of Witbank Dam and here you will find Steve’s Place. Just an hour out of Gauteng on the R544, just off the N12, Steve’s Place is the perfect get away for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and exchange it for a bit of relaxation and recuperation. 

Built with the whole family in mind, there really is something for everyone at Steve’s Place. Witbank Dam, the largest municipal dam in the Southern Hemisphere, is obviously a huge draw card and Steve’s Place looks to capitalise on this by offering two launching sites. Here boat owners can utilize this enormous dam for their own pleasure and at their own pace, whether it is for sundowner cruises or crack of dawn fishing trips.

Witbank Dam held the record for the largest bass caught in South Africa, weighing in at 6.045kg, for many years. So it is a prime fishing spot for anglers looking at hooking a record breaking fish, especially as Steve’s Place offers the added attraction of night fishing in a safe and secure location. It’s also a great place for kids to learn the art of fishing, while being surrounded by other alternatives that will keep them entertained while their parents relax.

Free-ranging animals, a variety of swimming pools including the legendary ‘Pool Bar’ all help to make Steve’s Place a great destination, whatever your age. With a host of accommodation ranging from family friendly Chalets to the convenient flats perfect for a couple wanting a weekend away. It is hardly surprising that Steve’s Place is fast becoming the place to be seen on Witbank Dam.
