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.

Okay. 3 out of 5
