This beautiful dam on the Umgeni River is situated next to Howick in the middle of the Midlands Meander (an association of rural businesses selling curios, art, crafts, foodstuffs and furniture and providing restaurants and accommodation.)
This tranquil setting provides opportunities for a wide variety of sporting activities, including water sports, cycling, walking, game viewing, angling or just lying back at one of the many picnic sites with the tantalising smell of many barbecues wafting through the air and the green hills of KwaZulu Natal framed between water and sky.
Midmar hosts the Annual Midmar Mile which is the largest open water swimming event in the world as well as a large number of provincial and National Triathlons and sailing events. The Henley Midmar Yacht club has organised races on most weekends and has excellent facilities for the sailing faternity.
