(officially the Hartbeespoort Dam Reservoir) is a dam situated in the North
West Province of South Africa. It lies in a valley to the south of
the Magaliesberg mountain range and north of the Witwatersberg mountain
range, about 35 kilometres west of Pretoria. The name of the dam means
"pass of the hartbees" (a species of antelope) in Afrikaans. The dam was
originally designed for irrigation which is currently its primary use.
The dam is situated on the
farm Hartebeestpoort, once owned by the Boer General Hendrik Schoeman (1840
- 1901). The farm and adjacent land was acquired by the State, mainly through
the facilitation of his son, Johan Schoeman (1887 - 1967), in about 1912.

dam was completed in 1923 and subsequently became a very popular holiday
and weekend resort for the inhabitants of Johannesburg and Pretoria; it
is the principal water recreation area of northern Gauteng and many types
of water sports are practised on the dam. Hartbeespoort Dam supplies irrigation
water through a 544km long network of canals to 159.76km² of farmland
on which tobacco, wheat, lucerne, fruit and flowers are produced.
The town of Hartbeespoort
is situated close to the dam wall and the villages of Kosmos and Schoemansville
can be found alongside its banks. A tarmac road skirts the circumference
of the dam; along its route it passes through a 56.6m long tunnel and also
crosses the dam wall.
