The setting overlooking the reservoir and sandstone formations on the fringe of the geological formation known as the Clarens a Formation is breathtaking. The road leading to the Resort certainly needs some serious maintenance.
The amenities at the resort cater for all ages and cannot be faulted but the chalets are a bit tied and need refurbishment. A fantastic boma is opened at least twice a week for spectacular barbecues, a super swimming pool, minin golf, walks and tennis courts are available to residents.
As a fly fisherman I was blown away by what the dam has to offer by way of Flyfishing and I would recommend this location to anyone, world wide who would wish to sight fish to an amazing species of indigenous fish. Access to a boat is Essential to fully enjoy what this location has to offer during the warm water summer months. The water in the reservoir is crystal clear. The indigenous Yellow Fish are feisty and offer a fight second to none. Fishing dry fly's such as ants, beetles etc are the order of the day and if you are a first time visitor would consider a fishing guide essential. Enjoy!!
