Hartbeespoort Dam

Depart from Rand Airport, Germiston and take a scenic flight to Hartbeespoort Dam, also known as Harties. The dam is situated in the North West Province of South Africa and lies in a valley to the south of the Magaliesberg mountain range, about 35 km west of Pretoria. The name of the dam means “pass of the hartebeest”. The dam was originally designed for irrigation which is currently its primary use. The town of Hartbeespoort is situated close to the dam wall and the villages of Kosmos, Melodie, Ifafi and Meerhof can be found alongside its banks.

Cradle of Humankind

Another popular option would be a flight to the Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage site 47 000 hectares in size. This is a destination with a rich and fascinating history told to us through the ancient fossils that have been found here. It also has over 400 attractions, including restaurants, art and craft outlets, lodges, wildlife facilities, places of historical interest and spaces for young and old just to have fun. The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site offers a wonderful experience for national and international tourists and a chance for all to be part of humanity’s history. Go to the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, the home of our ancestors, and discover ancient history, learn about human beginnings, take a journey of discovery and adventure !

Vaal Dam

The Vaal Dam in South Africa was constructed in 1938 and lies 77km south of Johannesburg CBD. The lake behind the dam wall has a surface area of about 320 square kilometers and is 47 meters deep. The Vaal Dam lies on the Vaal River, which is one of South Africa’s strongest-flowing rivers. It has over 800 kilometers of shoreline and is South Africa’s second biggest dam by area and the third largest by volume.

The beauty of any of these flights is a welcome retreat from the concrete jungle of city living. What are you waiting for, go and enjoy yourself !
