While we were visiting Caro’s parents in Prince Albert one of her dad’s old colleagues came to visit. Her parents took them (and us) to the Gamkapoort Dam.

Gamkapoort Dam is located on the Gamka River, near Prince Albert, Western Cape, South Africa. It was established in 1969 and its primary purpose is for irrigation. The nature reserve surrounding the dam is inhabited by a large variety of mammals, insects, birds, and plants. Unfortunately since early 2016, for the first time in 24 years, the dam has been mostly empty.
