Willem Pretorius Nature Reserve

At the heart of the reserve is the Allemanskraal Dam, fed by the Sand River that traces a line of demarcation between the contrasting habitats of the northern and southern sections.

The south consists of grassy flats, ideal for large herds of plains game such as springbok, blesbok and black wildebeest. In the north is an area of plains, koppies and ridges of the Doringberg and Bakkersberg, inhabited by baboon, mountain reedbuck, red hartebeest, kudu and duiker.

This well-bushed area is favoured by white rhino, buffalo, giraffe, gemsbok and impala – the last three not indigenous to the region but introduced to provide variety for visitors.

Although 12 000 ha in area, the reserve is too small to support large predators, the largest being caracal and black-backed jackal.

The dam – which covers 2 500 ha when full – attracts great numbers of aquatic birds. The bird checklist for the reserve totals some 220 species.

ln the northern section are ruins of stone buildings that date to prehistoric Sotho occupation, and one such settlement, on the Bakkersberg, has been restored and proclaimed a national monument.
