Situated about 260 km south of Windhoek, the Hardap Resort encompasses Namibia’s largest dam, Hardap, which is on the Fish River. Although first investigations were carried as early as 1897, construction commenced in 1960 and the dam was completed in 1963.
Hardap is well known as an angler’s paradise, with annual competitions held regularly for enthusiasts. But few know that the small Hardap Game Reserve is a haven for black rhino and that the dam and surroundings accommodate one of Namibia’s most strategic great-white-pelican breeding colonies and a thriving freshwater fish institute that is supporting the country’s growing aquaculture industry.
