Where you’ll be

Oranjeville, Free State, South Africa

The Vaaldam is one of the most popular weekend destinations close to Gauteng. It is located about 145kms south of Johannesburg (approximately 1.5hrs drive). The dam is the 4th largest in South Africa and a favourite place for those in the land-locked provinces to enjoy all kinds of water-sports.

The dam was completed in 1938, and has an island close to Deneysville that is almost 5km long. It is known for hosting many exciting world class sports events, including the famous Around The Island Yacht Race. The Vaaldam's shoreline spans across three provinces (Free state, Gauteng and Mpumalanga).

The main activities at the Vaaldam are mainly around water-sports, fishing & outdoor land based activities. There is skiing, jet skiing, wake boarding, rowing, yachting, windsurfing, tubing and canoeing/kayaking.

For fishing enthusiasts the dam offers many quiet and secluded spots perfect for an afternoon of fishing.

Land based activities extend to motorised and non motorised cycling and/or other outdoor sports.

For all bird enthusiasts, there is a Vaal Birding Route; more detail on Facebook (Vaal Birding Route).

There is a variety of golf courses close to the Vaalriver (i.e. Maccauvlei & Emfuleni)

Horse Riding - Weltevrede Lion Farm - Refer to Guidebook included below.

Sgt Pepper's Guest House is in close proximity to the local Hotel with Ladies Bar. In town there is also a few other pubs with some also offering pub lunches.

Outside of town there is a Lion Farm (with restaurant) and a Distillery - Refer to Guidebook included below.

There is a highly recommended butchery & bakery on route (Deneysville) especially for the all important Braai (Barbeque) requirements.

We hope to see you soon visiting this beautiful part of South Africa's Free State with blue skies, wide open spaces and metsimaholo (lots of water).
