About Us

Henk Janse van Rensburg is the owner of Wonderland 45.  Henk is married to Felicity and have 4 grown sons. Henk has a passion for

family and fishing and combined his love for both in Wonderland 45, Family Break-away and Fishing and wishes to share it with you.

Henk has been living on the farm for more than 25 years and decided to develop the grounds into a fishing and camping resort.

It gives families and friends the opportunity to spend time together, share an interest in fishing and to enjoy nature without having to

travel for hours to the resort. We are situated outside Pretoria East, about 20km from the Hans Strydom/Lynnwood Drive crossing to

the dams, making it a quick drive just outside of the city.

The origin of the Boschkop river is a fountain, about 1km upstream from the dams at Wonderland.

The water is clear and not contaminated by any industrial or residential waste.


We offer the following:



Trout fishing is available during the cooler months from March/April until end of October. Fly fishing for Trout allows for catch and

release and all bait fishing for trout is put and catch; you need take and pay for the Trout you catch. We clean the Trout for you and

keep it fresh in the freezer until your departure.

If you are not into Trout fishing, you can catch Carp, Bass, Baber and Tilapia, all these species are catch and release.

Tilapia is active during the warmer months from October until April/May. If the fish was hurt, bleeding, dying or died when

caught, the fish need to be taken and paid for.


Camping and Day Visitors

Camping – we have 22 campsites with electricity, each with a built braai, a light and fresh borehole water. Booking in

advance is essential. You can book online or send a booking request by email to admin@wonderland45.co.za.

Day visiting - there are braai areas next to the dams and vacant camp stands are available for day visitors. Booking not necessary.

Group bookings can be made for children’s parties, family or church groups. It is better to make group booking as we offer

discounts (conditions apply) and allocate a stand or stands to you for your convenience.

Ablution blocks with flush toilets, showers, a bathroom and dish washing facilities, are in walking distance.


Play area

There is a sandpit playground, swings, a jacuzzi and swimming pool for children. The “Speeldam” of 25m x 55m x 1m deep,

is allocated for water fun. You can play with rowing boats and tubes on the dam, or play on the swings that swing over the dams.
