Resort Summary KwaZulu-Natal - Midlands - Howick
Midmar Dam and nature reserve features electrified and non-electrified campsites on the banks of the Midmar Dam, and is close to the Howick Falls, Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands Meander. The resort offers a variety of small game, sunset cruises on the dam, modern ablution facilities and bicycles, windsurfers, canoes and yachts can be hired.
This beautiful dam on the Umgeni River is situated next to Howick in the middle of the Midlands Meander (an association of rural businesses selling curios, art, crafts, foodstuffs and furniture and providing restaurants and accommodation.) This tranquil setting provides opportunities for a wide variety of sporting activities, including water sports, cycling, walking, game viewing, angling or just lying back at one of the many picnic sites with the tantalising smell of many barbecues wafting through the air and the green hills of KwaZulu Natal framed between water and sky. Midmar hosts the Annual Midmar Mile which is the largest open water swimming event in the world as well as a large number of provincial and National Triathlons and sailing events. The Henley Midmar Yacht club has organised races on most weekends and has excellent facilities for the sailing faternity.
A boat shop where cycles, windsurfers, canoes and yachts can be hired is open during weekends and peak periods. Launch tours and sunset cruises are available, subject to prior arrangement.
Accommodation Thirty two fully-equipped chalets (including a six bedded chalet especially equipped for the handicapped) provide comfortable accommodation in a scenic area overlooking the dam. In addition, sixteen rustic cabins, are available to the visitor. These are equipped with refrigerators and electric stoves, but have communal ablution facilities. Campsites There are three separate campgrounds within the resort, of which two have water frontage. At present two of the campgrounds have limited electrical plug point facilities. All sites are served by communal ablution blocks, with hot and cold running water.
