Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve

About 20km north-east of Pretoria, the Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve is a popular destination for birdwatching, freshwater angling and a variety of water sports.

There is also a 7km hiking trail, as well as a picnic and braai area on the edge of the sprawling Roodeplaat Dam.

The reserve makes for an excellent day-trip destination, and if you're keen to spot some wildlife, the southern part of the dam is great for game viewing. You may see kudu, zebra, impala, blue wildebeest, warthogs and black-backed jackals, among other animals.
