Might be worth the visit when in Clarens for the panoramic view. There are lodges within the area but there may not be a lot of activities there. On a clear day, the landscape against the water and sky is just beautiful.

A natural mesmerizing place where one can be at his or her own peace.
The dam is quite big and one can drive at small dirt route, 4 by 4 drive would be best.
The water is quite chilling and the bluish tinge is quite unlike the others.
Accommodation are available there and one can have a romantic day spent there.
Have visited thrice and will always look forward for another one...

Great views and accommodation. Friendly staff that are always willing to assist. Great location to explore the surrounding areas such as Clarence and Fouriesburg

On a whim, I decided to take a quick break from the stress of city life and booked at the Qwantani resort in the Nature reserve. What a hidden gem!! Beautiful resort overlooking the Sterkfontein dam, clean, spacious units and so peaceful - will definitely go again

Clear blue water with the back-drop of imposing mountains. Very scenic view. It is also an important hydro-electric project.
