The Witbank Dam was built in the 70’s as a main supply for industrial and municipal water, however, with a capacity of over 104,000,000 cubic meters of water, the dam’s popularity has grown as a holiday spot for the whole family to enjoy.
The Witbank Holiday Resort is right next to the dam and offers caravan, camping and chalet facilities, along with swimming pools, mini golf and braai facilities amongst others.
The Witbank Dam has a fairly sandy bottom and most fish only get caught during the night when the hustle and bustle has calmed down. The main water course for the dam comes from the Olifants River and there is actually more than one fishing spot around the resort that the fishermen can go to for some angling.
