Had a 6-year old birthday here. Wide open spaces for the kids to run around, kick a ball & ride their bikes without disturbing anyone else. Big trees provide shade. Braai (BBQ) amenities available. So we made fresh hotdogs outdoors. Tractor ride available, but the 40 minute ride turned out to be 2 hours. All the kids went, so we... More

What a lovely way to spend some quiet time in nature. The hikes are well marked and there is plenty to see and enjoy.

My first viewe was a couple of zebras strolling by the fence close to the road. Not something you see everyday - except of course here!

This is a great place to escape the rush of the city while you are still in it. The animals are beautiful and you are free to walk or ride a bike. You can rent bikes at the place and do 4x4

I frequently go on Weekends for 5 or 10km hikes. Have had amazing animal sightings. Seen a family of five giraffe with just born baby still wobbly on its feet with cord still fresh, only to see 2 adolescent giraffe about an hour later. It's great that they have separated the mountain biking trails and the hikers trails - while... More

We went there a few times to ride horses, and it was great. When you live in the city you sometimes forget what fun activities there are to do and this was the best news I heard when they said I can go horseback riding at Groenkloof. Beautiful, feels like you escaped for a few hours away from the city... More

To start off my exploration I found that most of the staff were borderline useless. Being a tourist I knew very little about the place and what I could do there. All the roads were blocked off so I assumed I had to walk but with no map I decided to ask someone who looked like they worked there. When... More
