Known as Harties to the locals, Hartbeespoort is a small town located in the North West Province of South Africa and bordering the wealthy Gauteng Province. It’s the playground of pleasure seekers, drawn to the 2000ha dam and the many attractions along its waters.
The area is popular as a venue for out of town conferences and teambuilding events, the crisp clean air and temperate climate ensuring a relaxed, pleasant environment.
