The park is lovely for a picnic and the children enjoy the bird sanctuary. The restaurant is lovely, it gives the feeling of being outdoors and the setting with the bird life is really nice.

Did a long hike here in August 2014. Very nice, relatively easy walk. Encountered some game (zebra and giraffe), which gave the hike a special touch. Will certainly re-visit this area.

Car, bike, feet; no matter what you use to get there and tour there, it's catered for. Great place when one considers its only about 5 kms from Pretoria city centre. No big 5, but great bird life. Ideal if you have a couple of hours to spare. Take your own bottled water, as prices for this cheap commodity as... More

I was 4x4 with my dad the day we got to groenkloof reserve ! It was so much fun, the obstacles were adventurous and tough , but we got through all of them , everything was clean eventhough it was such a large reserve. The staff was friendly and eager to help.

I am a regular visitor of the reserve and it is a great getaway from the city life without having to drive very far where one could bring their mountain bike, go on a hike, drive their 4x4, take a horse ride or even have an early afternoon braai with friends or family. The reserve provides well maintained facilities as... More

Groenkloof is the perfect escape to cycle or hike in an environment where there are no cars. Great for children's parties or a lazy day under the trees. There are facilities to braai. Take the family and friends. Brilliant cycling courses - on and offroad, horseriding, huts to stay over in, 4x4 routes, long hiking trails (a few wild animals),... More

Groenkloof NR offers great hiking opportunities, just make sure you are informed on where to go before you leave. The wildlife is very relaxed and don't forget to pay attention to all the beautiful smaller things like birds and flowers!

A great opportunity to mountain bike, hike or 4x4 in touch with games and nature while you are still in the middle of Pretoria. But..., they should improve in security.
