Spioenkop Dam and Nature Reserve
Afrikaans name: Spioenkop Dam en Natuurreservaat
On 24th January 1900 the battle of Spioenkop took place in the area. Although the site is situated outside of the reserve it is still visible. To reach it one needs to travel out the reserve and follow the signposts.
In recent times the water levels are low but the dam is used for boating and fishing.
Accommodation in the reserve consists of 30 camping or caravanning sites as well as the Iphika Tented Camp. The reserve is administered by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.
