Spend a glorious day outdoors with the kids. Had a picnic under the huge trees. Kids could run & ride bikes without worrying about cars etc. Mountain bike trails all around. Safe & secure parking.

My husband is a Mountain Biker and I love walking. We go to Groenkloof Nature Reserve and love the fresh air, occasional viewing of animals (zebra's Giraffes and rooibokke have been spotted on our past visits). It is a true priviledge to have such a beautiful spot so close to where we live.

I managed to drive around in my car but did not see many animals at all which was quite disappointing.

Groenkloof will stay one of the best days outdoors! Unforgettable mountain biking with stunning well maintained single track routes with lits of animal viewing. Hiking also supurb. Picnic area and tuck shop clean and picturesque. Enough for kids to do with playground, bike track and jungle gyms. A really nice day out with or without your family!

Entrance fee is R35 per adult. The paths are in good condition (or as it is intended to be) ranging from tarred road to rocky... More

I always enjoy going there... for a walk, a mountain bike ride or to look out for giraffes and zebras. It's special because it's a big natural area so close to the city centre.

Went to Groenkloof yesterday with a friend and had a really good time. Lots of animals (see photos) and generally a well laid out area. You can drive around with a normal car, but it is even more fun with a 4x4. There is also bike paths and lots of walking tracks. Make sure to bring some food/BBQ equipment -... More
