Accommodation near Loskop Dam Nature Reserve

The Loskop Dam Nature Reserve is a large reserve in Mpumalanga which covers 23 000 hectares of the province's cultural heartland. It is located roughly 55 kilometres north of Middelburg and is within a reasonable distance of the farming communities of Loskop, Groblersdal and Marble Hall. The Loskop Dam, which covers 2300 hectares of the reserves total area, is Southern Africa's largest man made dam, with the original dam wall being built across the Olifants River gorge in the 1930's. The dam feeds the irrigation systems of the aforementioned farming communities.

Over the years, the Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency, who run the reserve, have put huge effort into re-stocking it, bringing back a host of the species which were originally found there. Today there are over 70 mammalian species found within the reserve's boundaries, including 3 of the big 5 species. Some of the animals you can expect to see are giraffe, zebra, hippo, white rhino, leopard and buffalo (the latter 3 species having big 5 status). There is also an abundance of bird life in the park.

Activities within the Loskop Dam Nature Reserve include active pursuits like mountain biking or hiking (there is a network of single or multiple-day hikes). Fishing is also extremely popular, with seasoned fishing fanatics enjoying the variety of mudfish, catfish, bream, eels, yellow fish and more.

The subtropical climate of the area means the summer time is characterised by hot, humid days, perfect for water sports, while the winter months bring with them dry, mild conditions making every other activity pleasant.
