Many people are familiar with the massive Gariep Dam but are not so familiar with the town of the same name, also referred to as Gariep Dam Town or Gariepdam Town.

The town has grown over the years and now not only caters for the tourist industry but is the hub for agriculture and other commercial activities in the area.

The town is well-known by those who enjoy the sport of gliding and a world record was set here for the furthest distance travelled by a glider. There is a small airport near town.

There are many accommodation options in the area including guest houses, BnB's, a hotel and more.
