Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve
Rietvlei Dam is situated to the south east of the city of Pretoria and therefore ideally situated within easy reach of people living in Gauteng. The reserve has been in existence for many years and a number of activities have been developed and catered for during this time, which include hiking, game drives and camping.

The reserve has a typical Highveld climate with dry, frosty winters and an average of 724mm rain during the summer rainy season. Temperatures reach as high as 34°C in the summer and as low as -2° in the winter.

The Reserve is made up of open grassland with undulating hills with indigenous trees clustered in small groups. Due to previous farming practices a number of exotic trees and shrubs also grow in the Reserve. The silver wattle (from Australia)  is the most problematic invader as it has no local enemies and seeds can survive up to 50 years in the soil. The silver wattle is removed mechanically and the wood is used as fuel.
