The Vanderkloof dam is the second biggest dam with the highest dam wall in South Africa and a holiday resort ideally suited to families. When the dam is full, it stretches a 100km long and is perfect for most watersports including sailing, skiing, and windsurfing. Dam tours can be undertaken, giving you insight into the history and workings of the dam. On the northwestern shore is the 6 200 hectare Rolfontein Nature Reserve. The reserve is home to eland, gemsbok, red hartebeest, Burchell’s zebra, white rhinocerous, kudu, springbok, grey duiker, bat-eared fox, baboon, vervet monkey, aardvark and aardwolf.
