Considered a gateway of the hartbees, a species of African antelope, the resort town of Hartbeespoort swarms with holiday homes around a popular arch-type dam.

And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre, have some family-friendly fun at Arrow Rest, get to know the resident critters at Hartbeespoort Dam - Snake and Animal Park, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.
