Hartbeespoort is known as the hidden jewel and gateway to the North-West, it lies 35 km west of Pretoria on the border with Gauteng, situated between the Majestic Ancient Magaliesburg, and the Witwatersberg mountain range. The Magaliesberg mountain range is a geological gem. Its formation dates back millions of years.
At the heart of the valley lies the magnificent Hartbeespoort Dam, the name of the dam means "pass of the hartebeest", a species of antelope. The dam was originally designed for irrigation, which is currently its primary use, as well as for domestic and industrial use.
The dam is 149.5 m long and 59.4 m high, and is built across a gorge cutting through the Magaliesberg. The reservoir is fed by the waters of the Crocodile River and Magalies River and covers approximately 18.83 square km, with a mean depth of 9.6 m and a maximum depth of 45.1 m.
