Although we only live approx. 10 minutes away from Rietvlei, we often take a drive to the reserve and watch out for animals. With a bit of luck you see rhinos and buffalos (apparantly there are also cheetahs, however, we have never seen them). Regular sights are zebras, wildebeest, ostriches, mountain reedbuck, springbok, red hartebeest and many more antilopes.
Once you have paid the entrance fee at the gate, you are provided with a map. The roads are in good condition - both gravel and tarred roads.
Stop for a picnic or some drinks at the dam or take a break at the bird hide.
Once entered Rietvlei, you completely forget the buzz of the city - a great place to wind down.
