Oubos, Ernst Robertson dam

Ernest Robertson Dam

This route takes you to the Ernest Robertson dam high up in the mountains in Jonkersberg. You will encounter indigenous forest, pine forest and fynbos vegetation types.

There are many streams with drinking water en-route but we recommend you still take at least 5 bottles of water or camelback.

Many areas on this route do not have cell reception so make sure you take extra fuel and spares.
