One of Mpumalanga’s most attractive reserves, Loskop Dam Nature Reserve covers an area of 23 612 ha and lies around the massive Loskop Dam on the Olifants River, 55km north of Middelburg in Mpumalanga. The Dam has created a natural floodplain and the scenic valley has been restocked with animals once indigenous to the area. These include the Eland and other species of antelope, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest and White Rhino. The dam wall was built in the 1930's across the Olifants River Gorge and was raised again in the 1970's.

The dam is approximately 30km long, which makes it the longest dam in the Southern Hemisphere and supplies water to a vast irrigation scheme in the areas of Loskop, Groblersdal and Marble Hall. The dam has become a favourite for anglers, watersports enthusiasts and boat-based game watching is offered by a number of resorts on the banks of the dam. The dam is well stocked with Yellowfish, Carp, Bream and Catfish and is regarded as one of the prime coarse angling sites in South Africa.
