We went for one of the walks to a waterfall. Lovely route with river to the side all the way. Nature beautiful especially after all the rain in winter.

Lovely Walks in the most majestic scenery. Very wet at this time of the year and the stream was running strongly.

Taking a walk through this area brings back the need to keep in touch with nature and our natural heritage in SA. The reserve was quiet and safe, giving us time just to wander and chat. Perfect for an afternoon or picnic

Great outdoor spot for any out door lover. Whether you hike, mountain bike or even play paintball. The scenery is breath taking, fresh air is great.

Went there with friends to go cycling. Even though I got heat stroke from the extremely hot day it was amazing to go cycling. Afterwards we had milkshakes in the cafe which were delicious !!!

What a wonderful place to visit and feel safe among the other walkers and those on their cycles. The views are stunning and the flora is breath-taking. A real treat.

Our morning run on Saturday was the off road trail inside the reserve. Wow, wow and wow!!! With such incredible scenery it is difficult to keep your eyes on the road (which is essential, considering it is off-road and rather rugged).

This is a haven for cyclists. Literally hundreds of bicycles travel along the Jonkershoek road - stopping for a bite to eat in the restaurant. Lovely walks in unspoilt mountains.

Turned out to be closed the day we went, but this didnt stop the guy on the gate charging my Dad despite clearly knowing we wouldnt be able to go in. Bit disappointing. Then was unable to give indication when it would open again etc,...we went and picniced elsewhere in the end.
