Tourism plays an important role in sustaining the economy of a country. Almost every country has some or other tourist attraction, whether it is the well known Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga (South Africa), the islands of Mauritius and Madagascar or the Croatian Coast line.
Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit different destinations every year and it seems that the tourist industry is growing each and every year.
South Africa is looking forward to its contribution as probably one of the biggest role players in the tourism industry in Africa.

Game Reserves / Natuurreservate
YouTube – Leefstyl C Toerisme / Lifestyle C Tourism
The Northern reserve is primarily for water recreation. The Northern side of the Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve caters for boating, fishing and camping. Primitive campsites (scattered throughout the reserve) are also located on the Northern side.
Located about 22km north-east of Pretoria the Roodeplaat dam was originally called the ‘Pienaars Rivier Dam’ when it was constructed in 1956 to supply the surrounding landowners with water. It has developed into an important water source for the Pretoria area and after commisioning the Roodeplaat water treatment plant in 2006, the dam augments the supply of water to the northern areas of Tshwane through the Montana, Wonderboom and Magaliesberg reservoirs and is used as a direct water supply to the Doornpoort area.
The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) delegated the management of the Roodeplaat dam area to the division of Nature Conservation of the Transvaal Provincial Administration (TPA) in 1972. The Transvaal Provincial Administrations mandate was to develop the area as a nature reserve and outdoor recreation facility for the city population. The reserve was proclaimed in 1977.
Roodeplaat dam is a well-known destination for bird watching, game viewing and a range of water sports including freshwater angling.
Rietvlei dam was built during the great depression (from about 1929 to early 1930’s) and was completed in 1934. Manual laborers were paid 4 shilling a month and soil was carted away by mule carts. Feeding the dam is the Sesmyl (Six Mile) Spruit, five fountains (one is located on an adjacent property) and five boreholes. Upstream from Rietvlei dam is the Marais Dam which acts as a sludge dam for Rietvlei Dam. Starting in 1988 a two year project raised the dam and made other improvements
Originally the dam was not open to the public but the city council of Pretoria did plan the reserve ecologically and introduced a number of game species to the reserve. The Nauture Reserve was proclaimed in 1948. Rietvlei dam provides Pretoria with 15% of it’s water. The reserve covers an area of 3800 hectares and can support up to 2000 head of game.
Rietvlei Dam offers a number of sporting facilities. Fishing is allowed on the northern and western shores and a yacht club house was built on the north-western shore. Motor boats are not allowed on the dam.
The roads in the reserve are well maintained and serve the public for game viewing and the reserve staff as maintenance roads and fire breaks. Roads divide the reserve into 31 blocks. Rotation grazing is practices on the reserve by routinely burning blocks and using lick as supplementary feeding.
