The Nqweba Dam is a fantastic spot to visit for the day or a weekend. Covering a total area of 1000 hectares at its fullest, this dam is popular among anglers and water sports enthusiasts. Just north of the dam there is a game viewing spot where you will have the opportunity of seeing a range of animals from, Kudu, Gemsbok, Springbok, Cape Buffalo, Wildebeest, Eland and Cape Mountain Zebras.
Sunrise and Sunsets are absolutely breathtaking when sitting alongside the dam and attract visitors from far and wide. People flock to the waters to enjoy canoeing, windsurfing and boating while fishermen stand a chance of catching Mullet, Common Carp, Round Herrin, African Catfish, Moggel, River Goby and Mosquito Fish in these waters.
Once of the most famous attractions here is the Camdeboo Dam Day, which is a competition where you create your own boat or floatation device and race it across the Nqweba Dam. Live entertainment, beer tents, food stalls and arts & crafts make this a fun filled event not to be missed.
