Brandvlei Dam is an earth-fill type dam on the Lower Brandvlei River in Western Cape, South Africa. It was completed in 1983 and the inlet is the Holsloot river. The Brandvlei Dam, 15 km south of Worcester, is often referred to as the Greater Brandvlei Dam. When both it and the adjacent Kwaggaskloof Dams are full, the “wall” as it is known that divides them is submerged, making it one massive impoundment with a capacity of 458 million cubic metres. It is reputedly the best smallmouth bass fishing area in the country. "Brandvlei" or "The Burning Marsh" was named after the regular view of steam rising from the rivulet flowing into the dam, especially during early mornings.Towards the northwest you will find Brandvlei Prison, which contains a hot spring with temperatures up to 45 °C, the hottest in South Africa. The Table Mountain Group hot water springs vary between 35 °C and 45 °C. The water at the nearby Goudini and the Brandvlei hot springs is classified as "pure" by virtue of its low content of dissolved mineral matter. You cannot visit this hot spring voluntarily (unfortunately it is situated inside the prison area).
