ABOUT THE HARTBEESPOORT DAM

The Hartbeespoort Dam was constructed in 1925 with a capacity of 205 million cubic metres and a shoreline – when full – of about 56 km.  The dam and its immediate surroundings is a major tourist attraction and it offers magnificent opportunities for water activities, mountain sports and a variety of other activities such as hiking, angling, yachting, ballooning hang-gliding, parasailing and abseiling.  Places of interest include the aquarium, private zoo, Snake Park and a cableway.  Hartbeespoort Dam has a number of arts, craft and curio outlets and it is part of the Heritage route to the World Heritage site (Cradle of Humankind) where a variety of historical and cultural interests are to be found.
