Groenkloof Nature Reserve hiking, biking and picnic.

Great nature bike, walk and picnic area in the centre of the greater Pretoria. Very safe and big enough to spend hours on a bike or a hike. Great picnic with the family as well.

Great place to go and do a 4x4 track, go for a hike or just sit under the trees for a lunch. Safety has been said to be an issue but being addresses by local municipality.

I love mountain biking in this park, it's full of zebra, wildebeest and kudu, but a recent rash of violent crimes have kept me away. I noticed new razor wire being installed on the fence my Nelson Mandela Boulevard, so hopefully it will keep the riff-raff out!

The groenkloof nature Reserve lays in the middle of Pretoria. You can watch animals or make tour on the mountain bike. Also horseback riding is possible.

Beautiful hiking trails and biking trails. Nice, clean, shaded braai area. Even a play area for small children. Seeing giraffe on the hike is always a highlight.

Nice trails. However muggings and attacks on people will keep me away along with lack of security. Also no restaurant what so ever! Stay away

Such an awesome experience during the hiking....watching animals while we at it. While the plan was for 10km hiking trail, we ended up doing 15km without even realising it. Fitness and Fun!!

A nice and enjoyable drive, great city views. Wildlife rarely strolls along the road. Saw a wildebeest.

My husband and son were mugged on one of the trails in Groenkloof. It saddens me that we can't enjoy this beautiful reserve and it angers me that the people at the entrance said it was very safe when my husband asked about safety (before paying). The 'rangers' drove around with my husband after the incident and they took him... More

We live only 3 minutes drive from here and frequently visit the reserve. It's always lovely to see the animals up close in this peaceful environment
