Groenkloof is a small nature reserve in Pretoria. You can hike on well marked routes, bike or go in with your car or 4x4 on designated routes, or just have a braai or pick nick. A reserve so close to the city is ideal for Sunday morning or afternoon activty. Most of the time you encounter a lot of wildlife... More

On days off the place is crowded. Most of the people bike or have a picknick, so it is easy to walk away from the madding crowd, but one must be lucky to see game.

What an amazing experience, bushveld walk in the middle of Pretoria. The trails are well marked, clean and for all levels of fitness. The entrance to the reserve is clean and the personnel somewhat helpful but you need to figure it out on your own but not difficult at all. The parking areas is again clean and safe under tall...

Love the hiking trails, going on a walk each week. Some hills are tough, put on proper hiking shoes. Take water with, and enjoy the nature and animals you'll come across during the hike.

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.

The small reserve on the edge of Centurion offers a variety of great terrain for trail runners and MTB enthusiasts, some great trail runners use the reserve for training. An array of wildlife such as Giraffe, Zebra and Wildebeest can be spotted on the trail

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!

Bike hire costs R200 per bike for two hours hire and a R250 Refundable Deposit must be paid. The bikes are in good order. Hiring includes a helmet (although info page lists as R10 extra?) 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
