Gariep Dam Reviews
Convenient beautiful day!
Views over the dam. The dam itself.
The view and lovely nature.
Sundowners at pool and bar area. Amazing views of Gariep Dam
Amazing to view the dam overflowing.
The location is good when you want to overnight on the trip between Johannesburg and Cape Town. The town itself is a bit dreary - all precast homes that date from when the dam was built - but you don't go there to be indoors.
We were there just before full moon, and the moon on the water was lovely. The dam itself is very impressive.
Boat cruise was nice.
Ek bly gereeld hier oor. Die vriendelike personeel is uitstekend. Die kamers is netjies jy het alles wat nodig is selfs al bly jy vir paar dae daar. Sal Gariep Inn aanbeveel.
More info about Gariep Dam
There is something both soothing and exciting about a holiday next to the ocean, river or lake. A large body of water offers both relaxation and tranquility, perfect for holidaymakers looking to escape the stresses of their lives back home. This is why so many people flock to beaches, rivers and dams, to have a holiday that includes the rejuvenating influence of the ocean.
The Gariep Dam (previously known as the Hendrik Verwoerd Dam) is located along the Orange River, just east of Colesberg in the Northern Cape. The Dam is the largest storage dam in South Africa. The area surrounding the Gariep Dam nature reserve makes this area particularly attractive as a holiday destination in the Northern Cape. What could be better than a large, pristine dam, surrounded by both nature and all the comforts of home?
Across the epic expanse of water, there are many ways to occupy your holiday time. Swimming, boating, waterskiing... Show more
About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
