Orpen Dam

Orpen Dam lookout point is situated on the S32 gravel loop road near Tshokwane picnic site.

The dam is named after Mr and Mrs Orpen, who donated 7 farms to the Kruger National Park. The Dam is been invaded by water lettuce and red water fern, which were declared as alien weeds, as they originated from South America.

There is a thatch lookout point with a spectacular view and some restrooms.

The dam is a favourite haunt for hippos and lizards love to bask in the sun on the rocky outcrops.
