  • The dam was build in 1933 during the South African colonial period. At the moment of our visit (Nov 2020) there was not one drop of water. Nice walk

  • The Avis dam is a dam in Namibia, on the eastern edge of the Windhoek district called Avis. The Avis dam was completed in 1933. Its reservoir has a capacity of about 2.4 million m³, making the Avis Reservoir one of the smallest reservoirs in Namibia. The Avis Dam is fed by two rivers and drained by the Klein-Windhoek river. It is located in a popular recreational area of ​​the Erosberge. It was originally designed to serve as a sustainable drinking water reservoir for Windhoek.
  • Was here last week Sunday. Nice place still inside Windhoek. Quiet and relaxing. One star lost because people dont remove dirt from their dogs. Is everywhere especially around entrance. Dog keepers should be advised to care.
