The original owner of the farm ‘Hartbeespoort’ was General Hendrick Schoeman. A cross in his memory is visible on a small hill on the Johannesburg side of the dam. General Schoeman’s farm now rests beneath the waters of Hartbeespoort Dam. Early work on the dam began around late 1895. Construction was on and off over the years up until 1923 when a young engineer took over the building of the wall. The Dam was constructed in 1925. The Crocodile and Magalies Rivers led into the Dam and complete capacity is 205 million cubic metres and its shoreline, when full, is about 56km.

The Hartbeespoort Dam was built as an irrigation dam for the surrounding agricultural areas. The Dam Wall is the only example of a Roman Triumphal Arch Styled Wall in South Africa.

 

Hartbeespoortdam is the second most-visited destination in South Africa.

Surrounded by the majestic Magaliesburg Mountains, the dam is a very popular weekend getaway.

 

Air-ballooning, browsing flea-markets, visiting the aquarium, the private zoo, the snake-park, a breath-taking trip up the mountain on the cableway, these are just a few of the many activities guests will enjoy at this splendid destination.
