About Gamkapoort Dam 4x4 Trail

Gamkapoort Dam is a wonderful 4x4 or mountain bike day or half day trip.

This journey takes you from valley to valley between the mountain ranges where you will experience the amazing rock formations along the way, and if you are fortunate you should have quite a few sightings of kudu, klipspringer, ostrich, tortoises and baboons with the most amazing silky long hair.

You will enter the Cape Nature Conservation area at the dam, and if you continue you will drive alongside the dam and around to an area where you can picnic next to the dam, canoe, fish or even take a dip, if you feel brave enough. Need to warn you though that it is very desolate and filled with ‘nothingness’, but so rejuvenating for the soul.

The Dam was built in 1970, and even though it is close to PA, was built for the sole purpose of the farmers in Calitzdorp, just on the other side and due to its construction there is now NO through road from PA to the other side, as it covers the original road, which is said to have been the main route through to Cape Town in days long gone.

This is yet another great cycling route for our crazy mountain bikers, don’t forget to take lots of water.
