Kempton Park Quarry - Marwan Fishing Dam
The Marwan Fishing Dam is in Kempton Park, on a private piece of land that holds and deals with scrap metal. The dam is very clear and pristine, considering it is surrounded by factories and housing complexes. There are some big fish here, but fishing can be tricky. The dam is very deep, as it was once a quarry. At the time of writing this article entrance to the dam was R15 per person, which is collected by one of the workers. When you arrive there will be 2 gates you will drive through, please open both and close them behind you as there are horses, sheep, pigs, chickens and dogs on the property.
