Garden Route Dam

Garden Route Dam

When in the George area a visit to the Garden Route Dam is a wonderful outing where one can enjoy the tranquil setting of the dam edged with fynbos and forest. The Dam is a major source of drinking water for the town of George and during dry periods the water levels in the dam drop considerably but besides this the area is still beautiful and there are various short trails where you can drive and picnic and enjoy a great view. It is a tranquil spot and great for the family picnic, and if you are keen to take a short hike you can also reach a swimming area called Pepsi pools from here.

As the Garden Route Dam is visited by thousands of tourists and visitors annually local municipality has had to implement certain measures in order to preserve and protect the environment and water resources and to ensure a healthy ecosystem. As such the main entrance to the Garden Route Dam is monitored by a security officer and all people entering the gate are required to sign a register. Furthermore, people who wish to visit the dam 30 minutes after sunset need to apply for a permit beforehand. These permits can be obtained in George, from the offices of the Law Enforcement Section in Cathedral Street at the back of the Fire Section building.
