We were pleasantly surprised with the very neat facilities at Bivane Dam when we decided to go Fishing for the weekend. The mountainous surroundings offers beautiful views.

Went as a day visitor. What a wonderful little place, I had no idea of the facilities they offered. Little shop, little pool, plenty of shaded areas and braais to use. Very clean and neat bathrooms. Dam level was very low but still pleasant. Will definitely return and stay the weekend next time at one of the chalets

Chalets have one 2 bed private room and an open loft...

Besides not catching anything it still...
