So waar
Die groen bolangs is mooi, maar die diep water is wat nodig is.
Sterkte aan ons boere!

Not the same dam. Gamkaspoort is near Sewe Weeks Poort.

Can anyone give a map location where Beaufort West dam are situated?

Dis die ou Apartheid regering se skuld.....

As hulle daai tyd nie sulke groot damme gebou het nie, was dit nou al lankal vol water gewees.  :deal:      :patch:

Stayed in the chalets at the dam once.  Very peaceful place.  Got a flat on the way back ... somewhat ruined our trip, but that's all part of the challenge of adventure riding.

Sover ek weet loop die Tankwa reen nie Gamkadam se kant toe. Gamkadam se water kom vanaf die Dwykarivier en BWes se kant. So as Merweville water kry dan kom daar Gamka toe.
