The breath-taking vistas of the Bivane Dam have ensured that this remains a popular spot for families, friends and couples to visit. This dam is built on the Bivane River and is situated between Pongola and Vryheid in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal.

The dam covers 700 hectares and is fabulous for water sports. In fact, it has been host to a number of canoeing and angling events, including the well-known Ithala Challenge Canoe Marathon.

The waters are known for their being somewhat turbulent, which makes canoeing really fun and challenging.

Because this area is so prolific in terms of bird life, it is also well-loved by avian enthusiasts.
