The Mokolo dam needs to be driven on by a boat to fully appreciate the size of it. It is a nice place for relaxing and braaing.

I took a drive here on a Sunday to pass time. It has decent areas to picnic or camp. There is not much to do unless you have brought a boat with you. The gravel road to the dam is quite sandy in places and...More

Really nice place to be. Bathrooms are far apart, but clean and well kept. We were only there for a day visit, no camping. Nice braai stands and clean. Its enjoyable all round if you love nature and being calm.

Huge reservoir, about 17 km across and 2 km at widest. Located inside the Waterberg biosphere, excellent fishing. Primitive camping facilities. Located at least 60 km from any shops and civilization, very remote if that is your kinda thing.
