Is in Matabeleland, about 40km from the Gwanda Rd. Its been on my to do list for sometime and was well worth the visit. We had a survey a short distance from here,a nd couldn’t resist a short detour.
Its low now, the water level marked on the rocks is down about two metre.
The dam was built in 1994 and is meant to supplement the Bulawayo water supply. The views around there are dramatic, the Matopos domes towering.
The road in is a little rough! But one part of it winds along the edge of the spillway gorge and looks almost as if it has been planted, with aloes and tiny flowering succulents.
