Namibia: Hardap Dam Resort near Mariental | Хардап Ресорт Намибия

The Hardap Dam Resort, situated at the largest dam in Namibia, is one of the most popular holiday resorts in the country. It lies on the upper reaches of the Fish River, 250 km south of Windhoek just off the main road to Keetmanshoop, and some 24 km from the town of Mariental. It is open throughout the year, and a year ticket is available to visitors who wish to come here on a regular basis. With its vast surface area of 25 sq km the Hardap Dam is a most impressive sight in the surrounding arid landscape. It is a paradise for water sport enthusiasts, and boat houses on the shore of the dam can be rented for added convenience. Fishing in these waters is exceptionally good and kurper, barbel, yellow-fish, carp and bass all abound. Angling competitions are a regular feature and angling permits can be obtained from the camp office. With many inlets and small islands this man-made lake provides a safe breeding place for a large variety of birds, including flamingos, fish eagles, Goliath herons, reed cormorants and ospreys. One of the three largest great white pelican breeding colonies in the country is found here, and more than 800 pelicans have been counted at one time. Boats are prohibited in certain areas of the dam, and it is here especially that one can marvel at the colourful variety of birds that enjoy the peaceful waters.
