“Impressive.”

Groenkloof Nature Reserve
Reviewed January 26, 2014

A group of us did the hike and had a braai afterwards. WE will definitly go back for some more hiking. Even though we did not see much animals, the hiking route is well marked and it was great to see the level of healthy relaxing in the hikers and bikers alike.
A huge plus point was that there was no music booming from any of the parked cars. Also good to see enough waste bins that were not overflowing with rubbish as one often encounters at such public places.
The loo's can doo with a little cleaning but its not a crisis.

This small slice of paradise within the city is the perfect location to wander the trails for a morning and afternoon. The reserve has well marked trails and wildlife can be spotted without going on safari. While it is close to neighborhoods, the setting feels remote. It is worth a visit. Be sure to have hat, sunscreen, water, and time.

If you love nature this is the place you need to visit in the heart of Pretoria. Lots of wildlife to be spotted - giraffes my particular favourite. Well managed and awesome development allowing for trail running, hiking, amazing mtb tracks and event mild and challenging 4x4 routes - all not getting in each others way. On mtb you can even pop into fountains for some additional great tracks. Limited facilities snack kiosk but bring your own picnic food, lots of nice spots.

My son and I had a wonderful day of nature appreciation while enjoying the 4X4 route. There is a fair range of trees, mammals and birds. The 4X4 route offers some exciting challenges including water crossings, dongas and rocky inclines/descent. The staff members who attended us were not well receptive though.
