PPerfectly posted half-way between Gauteng and the Cape, you?ll find this stop-over and watersport enthusiast?s paradise on the banks of the country?s largest dam, the 374sq km Gariep Dam. Bordering a well-stocked nature reserve, this vast expanse of sparkling water offers equally sparkling attractions ? game-viewing by boat, golf, windsurfing, sailing, jet skiing, canoeing, rowing and water tubes. Or bring your fishing tackle, Gariep will provide the rest! And if that?s not enough, go horse-riding, explore quad bike trails, play paint ball war games or visit the interesting fish hatchery nearby.

View bewitching sunsets over the dam from the 3-star, air-conditioned, fully equipped chalets with selected satellite TV channels, relax in the shady caravan and camping park with 16 sites boasting their very own ablution facility or try a ?breakfast package? on an overnight break.

Treat the family to a braai, the buffet spread at the resort?s restaurant or pack a picnic basket. And if you?re lucky you may catch a street party or ?beach? party. At Gariep, fun is on the menu every single day. Enjoy walking safaris, view Springbok and Cape mountain zebra, plunge into the swimming pools, play bowls, tennis and volleyball, or treat the kids to a feast of holiday fun, courtesy of the organised entertainment programmes.   

This oasis, set under big open skies, will cast its spell and entice families, conference delegates and guests on a stop-over to stay a few days longer!
