    Gariep Dam's Wall:

    The giant Gariep Dam, completed in 1971, was mainly built for generating hydro-electric power and irrigation. It is the largest dam in South Africa, with a shoreline of about 435 km, and the dam wall is 88m high and 914m long.

    The huge amount of 1.73 million cubic meters of cement was used during the building of the dam wall. Guided tours through the dam wall includes an interesting slide show in its well equipped audiovisual room, as well as a walk through the 13.2km of tunnels and more than a thousand steps that leads to its foundation on the Orange River.
