We love going to Groenkloof for the 4x4 trial. The mountain bike trial also nice and fairly well maintained. Staff friendly.

I read a number of reviews on this place before going and none mentioned that you need a 4x4 to drive through the reserve! We were so disappointed. We were allowed to walk through the reserve with our baby (seemed strange!), but not to drive our little rental car. Didn't see anything since we didn't make it too far into... More

Went for my first hiking here this Saturday, the 15th September with my sister. Did the 10,5 km. It was fun, safe, and fun. My sister was asking where the Zebras so can hitch a hike. And so we came across them. She froze. I took selfies with Zebras. We were lucky saw all the animals they said we will... More

This use to be a great venue for cycling. Something for the whole family. Unfortunately it is not safe to use this facility anymore. The routes are not maintained anymore. Facilities are dirty. It is very unfortunate.

This is the ideal place to spend a Saturday or Sunday, either with your family, or a group of friends. Sufficient braai facilities and acceptable ablutions add to the attraction. But, once there you can hike, ride your mountain bike or attempt to drive the excellent 4x4 track.

The title of my review is my only gripe. The hiking trails map has a "red, white and yellow" trail, but how am I supposed to follow the red trail if the map is printed in black and white!!? If possible, ask for a map to be emailed to you and print in colour for yourself. We started on the... More

I went here with my girlfriend and we were not sure what to expect as it was our first Nature/Game Reserve trip. We went without a car and without a guide but managed to have a great time. After losing track of the Red Trail (4 km), we ended up on the White trail (10.5 km). All in all our... More
