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.

This attraction boast a combination of activities that covers anyone who enjoys the outdoors. There is a 4x4 track for the more adventures with obstacles that range from level 2 - 5 especially in the rainy season. For the mountain bikers there is a separate trail so they do not meet there motorised friends by 'accident'. The jogger and walker... More

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

My wife and I took advantage of the beautiful Gauteng winter's day and went for a hike in the Groenkloof Nature Reserve.This was our second visit, we enjoyed it just as much as the first one. The game was unfortunately far away. The reserve was enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers and 4x4 enthusiasts, and people who just went there to... More

We turned up for an afternoon walk and decided to give the longer 10k route a go. I'm not convinced that the markers are accurate as I was wearing a GPS and the mileage read much more than what was advertised! Needless to say- a well marked route, quite tough going at times and not for the unseasoned stroller! The... More

Every Sunday we reserve for a visit to a sub-celestial domain. When we stick around town, Groenkloof at R30 a head, seems more reasonable than 10% of my income for a divine experience. All of the natural wonders reflect the seasons - rains flow out in streams in the summer. They nurture an explosion of flowers ahead of the fall.... More

This place is well looked after and absolutely worth the entrance fee. We are spoilt to have such a great cycling or walking location in our back yard.

We went camping for a few days and it was quite a mess. At each stand you never get all 3 essential requirements for camping, namely braai area, water and electricity. Besides having to pitch camp between a bunch of workers who took over the majoritynof the camp as they were all spread out all over the place, we had... More
