The Vaal Dam which was built in the 1930's and supplies Johannesburg with its water supplies is the perfect holiday destinations for those who are looking to get away from the busy city lifestyle. It is approximately an hour away from the Johannesburg city centre if you feel the need to take a trip to the mall but the tranquility of the Vaal Dam should captivate your attention while on holiday here.
The Vaal Dam has many attractions for the whole family. You will enjoy just relaxing on the waters edge, bird watching or participating in the many watersports available like skiing, canoeing, sailing or fishing. Not far from the Vaal Dam is the Deneysville Golf Course where you can enjoy the well groomed 18 holes with friends. Also there is the option of going on a game drive available on nearby farms. If the weather doesnt play the game then perhaps you might want to visit the casino which is only a few minutes away.
The Vaal Dam is in the Free State which enjoys warm to very hot summer months with most rainfall in summer and cool to very cold winter months.
