They have been identified as Gay Kay Kahuika and her stepdaughter Stacey Urodine Kemp, 11.
The Namibian police's acting regional crime investigations coordinator for the Hardap Region, Detective Chief Inspector Simon Petrus Hauwanga confirmed the incident on Thursday.
He said the two were at the dam's picnic and braai area with family around 16:00 on Tuesday when the incident occurred.
“They went to the dam site at the boat bay and went deep into the water. They however could not swim so they could get out of the water and drowned,” Hauwanga said.
Kahuika was a resident of Wanaheda in Windhoek, while Kemp resided in Gibeon.
