Barely 5 minutes drive from some of the opulent suburbs of Pretoria is this mini nature reserve, hikers and cyclists dream !! Stunning views of the city - spotted real Zebra up close - well worth a visit- from half an hour to half a day !!

Hiking trails are very well demarcated, and offer some brilliant hikes - especially early morning before too many people arrive. Although I'll often take friends with for the fun of it, I'm also not afraid to hike on my own - have done so many times and have always had a lovely time.

We had a wonderful time. We were 3 families with kids. We had a great "geocaching" hike followed by a picknick on the banks of the river. Beautiful site. Bikes welcome

If you live in Pretoria and want to get out of the city this is def worth a visit. Good hiking trails, nice scenery and if you're lucky you can spot some wildlife as well. Good facilities for picnicking and braai as well.

Who would have thought that there is a fantastic game reserve almost in the middle of Pretoria. Great place for activities like mountain biking, trail running and hiking. Perfect to have a braai with friends and family

Take a spin on your MTB or go for a Hike and spot an array of animals while you doing it. This is one of the top MTB trails i have ridden. Once you have done these trails head down to the fountains valley and try those. Its a bit more technical but it will get the blood pumping.

A group of us did the hike and had a braai afterwards. WE will definitly go back for some more hiking. Even though we did not see much animals, the hiking route is well marked and it was great to see the level of healthy relaxing in the hikers and bikers alike. A huge plus point was that there was...

This small slice of paradise within the city is the perfect location to wander the trails for a morning and afternoon. The reserve has well marked trails and wildlife can be spotted without going on safari. While it is close to neighborhoods, the setting feels remote. It is worth a visit. Be sure to have hat, sunscreen, water, and time.

If you love nature this is the place you need to visit in the heart of Pretoria. Lots of wildlife to be spotted - giraffes my particular favourite. Well managed and awesome development allowing for trail running, hiking, amazing mtb tracks and event mild and challenging 4x4 routes - all not getting in each others way. On mtb you can... More
