At the heart of the Willem Pretorius Game Reserve is the Allemanskraal Dam. It is fed by the Sand River and flows between the different habitats
of the northern and southern section of the reserve. The southern parts enjoy flat grassy plains and this makes the area ideal for large herds of game. Springbok, blesbok and black wildebeest roam freely in the scenic beauty.
The northern part of the reserve is encompassed by plains, koppies and the Bakkersberg and Doringberg ridges where baboons, reedbuck, Red Hartebeest, duiker and kudu abound.
The south consists of grassy flats, ideal for large herds of game such as springbok, blesbok and black wildebeest. Buffalo, white rhino and three non-indigenous species namely, giraffe, gemsbok and impala make for some excellent game viewing. The largest predators in the reserve are the caracal and black-eared jackal.
