Ultimate Adventure Guide: Gariep Dam Forever Resorts MTB Trail & Activities

Gear up for an adventure like no other at Gariep Dam’s Forever Resorts MTB Trail. Forget Lake Malawi or the Serengeti; they’ve got nothing on this biking escapade where you can embrace the call of fish eagles while cruising around the dam’s sandy shores. And guess what? You can do all of this on a budget that won’t drain your wallet, leaving you enough spare change to pimp your ride. Trust me, this place is a hidden gem, and I’m not too keen on sharing, but hey, if you end up going, a thank-you note wouldn’t hurt!



Hop on your bike and get ready for a wild ride. It’s a mix of fantasy, fearlessness, and high-speed antics once you hit the trail from Gariep Forever Resort. Follow the path, make a few turns here and there, pay your dues (they’ve got a fee, by the way), and say goodbye to the boring tarmac. The gravel road will lead you through some ups and downs, a bit of wildlife, and a whole lot of scenic views. Plus, let’s be real, you probably won’t bump into any vehicles along the way. So, gear up, embrace the mini-Serengeti plains, dodge some wildlife, and make a pit stop for some eagle-spotting by the shoreline. And don’t worry; you won’t find people messing up this lake like they do at Lake Malawi.


Once you’re back at the gate after around 33.4 kilometers of thrill, it’s not just about biking. The Gariep Forever Resort isn’t your run-of-the-mill place; it’s a clean, friendly haven offering every water sport you can dream of. From sailing to power-boating, they’ve got it all. And if you’re into exploring, there’s more—dam wall tours, horse riding, and even road cycling and trail running to check off your list.



Beyond biking, there’s a whole lot to do around here. You’ve got dam wall tours (yes, there are tunnels!), game-viewing safaris, and visits to a fish hatchery. Plus, they’ve got an aviation club, river rafting, and a bunch of other activities to keep you entertained. Whether you’re into sports, nature, or just chilling out, this dam has got you covered. And hey, you might just find your biking dreams coming true without breaking the bank.
