From the old castle on top of the mountain, one has a clear view of North and South Pretoria. The View is extraordinary, and it is understandable why this was chosen as a look out spot by the Boers!

It is a nice and affordable place to braai with Friends, colleagues and Family. My only issue is the lighting is very bad and the toilets are poorly maintained. Either than that, I have been there numerous times, and I have had enjoyable moments.

Popped in to see the Fig tree which is a declared champion tree. And typical of something that old, there are legends surrounding it. Ended up taking a stroll along the trails. I was not sorry. The trails are very rocky so ensure you have...More
