Ebenezer Dam is fed by the Groot Letaba River, near Tzaneen, covering about 386 ha at 1,360 m of elevation. Ebenezer is quite different to Tzaneen, being situated high in the Magoebaskloof. It is a cool, clear lake, often covered by rolling mist in the morning hours.
The dam has a beautiful scenic spot for picnicking (Public) as well as other water sports, and even river raft trips can be organized for groups between 10 – 30 people. Bank fishing is very difficult at the dam as the banks are steep, but boat fishing is sure to pull in one of the following: Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Carp, Kurper, or Barbel. There is also a pleasant campsite for overnight trips, with a slipway for launching boats. Unfortunately there is a fee for launching.
For more information on launching, fees and times contact The Boat Club on +27 (0)15 276 2341 or
