Swadini Dam is situated in the beautiful Blyde River Canyon and is surrounded by stunning mountains. It is part of the Forever Resorts Avontura Swadini.

The dam is on the Blyde River and has one of the worlds largest Tufa waterfalls. Tufa waterfalls are formed over millions of years when water runs over dolomite rock and absorbs calcium and a lot of other chemical things happen which are beyond the scope of this article (Hint - go to Wikipedia and look up Tufa).

The resort has both chalets and caravan stands. There are number of activities, such as boating, within the resort and there are many more places of interest nearby.
