Bivane Dam

Hidden away in the ancient hills of Northern KwaZulu-Natal, the magnificent diversity of nature set the stage for a water wonderland, the Bivane Dam

The marriage of the water, hills and a high level of plant diversity has produced an idyllic natural space within which, with sensitive handling, it has proved possible to accommodate both active recreation and the serene experience of nature.

Completed in 2002, the Bivane Dam with a surface area of 700 hectares was built by the Impala Irrigation Board on the Bivane River. The dam was conceived as a sustainable water supply for the local irrigation scheme and to secure primary water for the town of Pongola and surrounding communities. 

Approximately 55km from Vryheid, the Bivane Dam is easily accessible, situated near the centre of the triangle formed by the towns of Vryheid, Pongola and Piet Retief.

Bivane Accomadation

The dam has become a sought after destination for water activities like boating, skiing and bass fishing.  The turbulent waters below the dam wall are ideal for canoeing and river rafting.  Quad bike and 4x4 trails, hiking, mountain-biking and bird watching are increasingly popular.
