Enjoy a game drive in a closed air-conditioned vehicle in The Rietvlei Nature Reserve just outside Pretoria and 38 km from the OR Tambo International Airport.
The Rietvlei Nature Reserve is situated 18 km from the centre of Pretoria and 38 km from the OR Tambo International Airport. The 3 800 ha of endangered Bankenveld grassland includes open plains and undulating hills. The extensive vlei areas and tributary streams support the scenic splendour of the Rietvlei Dam – built to provide water to Pretoria.
Some 1 600 head of game, including cheetah, rhino, buffalo, blesbuck, black wildebeest, red hartebeest, eland, Burchell's zebra, hippo, waterbuck, reedbuck, springbuck, mountain reedbuck, steenbuck, black-backed jackal, and grey duiker can be viewed here. It is easy to spot the animals on the open plains and 60 km.'s of tarred and dirt roads will take you close up.
