When was the last time you've been in the Gamtoos Valley? Perhaps I should ask, have you ever been for a drive up to the Kouga Dam? If the answer to both of these questions are "never" or "not recently" then there is no time like the present. After all the rain we have had recently the Kouga Dam is currently overflowing and well worth a visit.
The Kouga Dam is located about 21 kilometers west of Patensie and was opened in 1969. It supplies water to both Port Elizabeth and the farming area within the Gamtoos Valley and has a dam wall of 94,5 meters high and 202 meters long. Just thought you'll want to know.
