You are only moments away

JJust 22km north of Pretoria, you’ll find the Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve Wildlife Sanctuary where you can picnic, go fishing, do some game viewing and finally tick those elusive bird species off your spotting list.

In Gauteng, there’s a constellation of private and public reserves, sanctuaries and wooded hideaways grouped within a destination called Dinokeng. One of the most popular places for a day outing is the Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve. Originally an irrigation dam, the abundance of vegetation attracts birds, game and fish.

Did You Know?
TThe southern banks of the Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve are best for wildlife, picnicking, and bird watching, whilst the northern shores are exclusively for water sports and fishing, with a few basic camp sites.
