On the S50 , quite a long drive from Shingwedzi, is the rather large Grootvlei Dam. This is normally a quiet spot to spend some time, as their is normally not very much traffic around here, because of the distance of this road.

Elephants and buffalo favour this dam, and impala, kudu and zebra also stop by regularly for a drink.

Fish eagles, african jacana, grey heron and reed cormorants are among the birds that can be spotted here. 

The Shibavatsengele lookout point is 8 km from this dam.
