Welcome to our Clanwilliam Dam Web site!
This site is dedicated to a group of us who go up to
Clanwilliam Dam for a holiday once a year (Newyear). For some dumb

world to meet up for this 1 week holiday, and this has been going on for

him first. Easy on the beers too beforehand if
you intend going - the road sucks and there is a serious
pass that you don't want to go over the edge of.

Neither of which are the reason for our yearly
return. For some it is the company, others the freedom of the
relatively short arm of the law. Many to escape the snow & sleet
from the Northern hemisphere. For me the beauty of the place,
a time to relax with good friends and a closeness to God.
