On our way to the Kalahari-Anib-Lodge, we stopped at the Hardap Recreation Resort, home of the Hardap Dam. It is easily accessible from the B1 and is a popular holiday destination for locals. The dam holds back water on an area of 25 square kilometers (roughly 10 square miles) and is the biggest water reserve in Namibia. Here, you can do several watersports, but it is also home to many birds. You even have a small game drive (nothing compared to Etosha, but still very interesting). Unfortunately, the road is in a very bad shape, so that at some point we simply returned for the lack of a 4x4 vehicle.
