Everything Vaaldam, Deneysville, Oranjeville,Vaal Marina
The Vaaldam is an hours drive from Johannesburg and has become the Watersport Mecca of the Gauteng region and South Africa.
The Vaal Marina area has also become an economic hub and offers accommodation and business opportunities to those who wish to spend more time in the clean air and relaxed atmosphere next to the dam.
A major annual event is the ‘Big Bird Count’ that happens early in the year. Many experienced birders gather from all the corners of South Africa to take an annual census of waders and other waterfowl.
Another feature of the Vaaldam region is the appearance of the lovely pink, white and red cosmos flowers in Autumn. Many visit the area every year to view this spectacular show of nature.
