General Information

The Gauteng section of the Vaal Dam is situated approximately 77km south of Johannesburg.  South Africa’s second largest dam by area and the fourth largest by volume, the Vaal Dam is a very big area of water indeed.  The dam extends over three provinces namely Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Free State, and is a firm favourite for weekend getaways and water sport enthusiasts.
