Really nice place to be. Bathrooms are far apart, but clean and well kept. We were only there for a day visit, no camping. Nice braai stands and clean. Its enjoyable all round if you love nature and being calm.

Huge reservoir, about 17 km across and 2 km at widest. Located inside the Waterberg biosphere, excellent fishing. Primitive camping facilities. Located at least 60 km from any shops and civilization, very remote if that is your kinda thing.
