South Africa's largest water storage reservoir, the Gariep Dam, is placed on the Orange River between the Northern Cape and the Free State just 30 kilometres east of Colesberg. Apart from serving an important function - supplying water to parts of the Vaal, Fish and Sundays catchments and irrigation along the Orange River itself - the Gariep Dam also lies in one of the most beautiful gorges at the entrance to the Ruigte Valley.

The Gariep Dam is a concrete gravity-arch hybrid design, chosen because the gorge was too wide for a complete arch, hence the use of flanking walls that stand 88 meters high with a crest length of 914 meters. These measures may be of interest but they conceal the beauty of this incredible man-made lake that is more than 100 kilometers long and 24 kilometers wide and provides a body of water over which to glide - international gliding championships take place here every year - and for water sports. The Town by the name Gariep Dam was built here during the 1960s, one of the youngest villages in the country built to house the dam's labour force and now a holiday resort that serves the dam.

* Boat cruises. * Fishing. * Visit nature reserves. * An 'inside the Gariep Dam wall tour. * Take a hike to the dam wall and back.

Guest Comments

A lovely place to stay. Beautiful views of the dam. Hot tap in the shower didn't work but this was a minor set back as there was a bath. Would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic service. Beautiful views and great value for money. Will definitely go back there in future.
