It was great to visit the dam and game reserve. I did the abseiling over the dam with Spirit of Adventures. These guys are so helpful and professional. We also did a hiking trail called love bench and the nature there is simply amazing.

I have made many trips to Shongweni Dam and have enjoyed every experience, be it a picnic trip or stay over at the tented camps. If you are a nautre lover and enjoy the rustic experience, then this venue will be a treat.
