Good 4x4ing

There is some great 4x4ing on this route. The animal sightings are also great for the family & gives something for the kids to do.

Many different walking and cycling routes, short ones and long ones. Some game around but nothing to be scared of just stay away from the giraffes. Only bathrooms available on site. Green lawns for picnics.

Groenkloof nature reserve is tranquil and a good place to have a quiet picnic with the kids. It also has various walking and cycling paths where one would most probably see some wildlife like zebra etc.

Groenkloof is a really well maintained spot to visit and hard to believe such places still exists withing city limits. Great trails for hiking, running and cycling.

Husband , triple by pass later, managed the white walk of 3,7km. It was delightful with a nice little hill, lovely plants and views. Treat of cinnamon pancakes afterwards & noticed one can also hire mountain bikes & ride horses. A great place to start convalescence and slowly getting fit close to home but out in nature.

The 10,5km (colour-coded yellow) trail took us 3,5 hours, with my unfit companion setting the pace (and struggling a bit on the last 2km), so it's advisable to set aside a morning to complete it. The map given at the entrance gate is a monchrome photocopy, so a measure of interpretation is required for colour-coded features. The trail is well-marked,... More

If you need a break from the city, but don't have much time, this is the place. Have a braai, bring your friends, the kids, bicycles and spend a day outside.

So its been over a year since my last visit. The mtb tracks have only gotten worse. It seems that nobody is looking after the riders needs. Broken bridges,badly marked routes and locked gates. Over and above the disappointing trails the price is almost double what it was a year ago. If you're looking for a "FUN" place to go... More

This is really a place to Relax and have a good Hike of 10-15 km in a safe surround with some buck and wonderful RSA trees and plants, take enough water and an energy bar, there is an Entrance fee but worth while

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.
