North of Johannesburg lies one of South Africa's oldest dams,
built in 1923, which provides a favourite day trip for city
dwellers set against the Magaliesberg mountain range. A scenic road
encircles the dam, culminating in a tunnel just before it reaches
the dam wall and the Hartbeespoort village. The village offers a
small zoo and snake park, cableway, bird park, aquarium and several
restaurants and curio shops.
