The Polokwane Game Reserve with its close proximity to Johannesburg conserves the Pietersburg Plateau false grassland. This is home to a number of important endemic birds including the Short-Clawed Lark and Ashy Tit.
21 species of game, including White Rhino can be found here. There is an excellent network of roads that cover the various habitats and there are also a number of hiking trails. Because most of the Pietersburg Plateau false grassland has been transformed by agriculture, the only enduring examples are found in and around the Polokwane Game Reserve.
