This reserve is on the southern outskirts of Pretoria, and very to reach. It is a reserve with a surface area of about 38 square kilometres. It is a nature resreve planned around the Rietvlei dam.
A great variety of game can be found in the reserve eg rhino, buffalo, springbok, waterbuck, ostrich, zebra, red hartebeest, black wildebeest, cheetah etc etc.
There are also 272 species of birds.
There are about 40km of road you can travel on to view game, picnic areas and toilet facilities.
This is a gem of a nature reserve, especially as it is so close to the city (almost part of the city).
There are also night drives available, which needs to be booked.

Directions: Take the R21 in a southern direction, the take the Rietvlei exit and follow the signs.
