Hartbeespoort Dam is an enormous Dam in the North Western Province of South Africa, built in a beautiful valley on the Crocodile River, between the mystical Magaliesberg and Witwatersberg mountains, 70 kms from Johannesburg and 35kms from Pretoria.
The dam was opened in 1923. People from Johannesburg built charming thatched weekend cottages on the slopes in the 1930’s, to enjoy the country quiet with lovely scenic views over the dam.
A charming small holiday Resort town grew up around the dam, little villages developed along the banks. The large expanse of water was a welcome sight on the high dry savannah of the Transvaal plateau
Nowadays the dam is a major Water sport Playground and Relaxation Destination for Gauteng, not only for its scenic beauty but also its convenient proximity to the cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg. It is less than an hour’s drive away from both.
