“Again and again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

I always enjoy going there... for a walk, a mountain bike ride or to look out for giraffes and zebras. It's special because it's a big natural area so close to the city centre.

“FOR THE NATURE LOVER”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

This attraction boast a combination of activities that covers anyone who enjoys the outdoors. There is a 4x4 track for the more adventures with obstacles that range from level 2 - 5 especially in the rainy season. For the mountain bikers there is a separate trail so they do not meet there motorised friends by 'accident'. The jogger and walker is not left behind but also has the opportunity to enjoy their time in the open. With an abundance of animals there is enough to see as a quick getaway into the wild. The facilities allow for a BBQ and is family friendly. We enjoy a visit with our grand children and it presents an ideal opportunity to teach the young ones a love for nature as it is not too long for them to sit in the car and there are animals to see frequently

“Awesome place for a quick getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Went to Groenkloof yesterday with a friend and had a really good time. Lots of animals (see photos) and generally a well laid out area. You can drive around with a normal car, but it is even more fun with a 4x4. There is also bike paths and lots of walking tracks.
Make sure to bring some food/BBQ equipment - benches and fireplaces are provided. If you have young kids you can find a play area near the car park.

“Groenkloof Reserve”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

A nature reserve in pretoria itself! 4x4; hike; biking or picnic your choice :D it's tons of fun after some rain mud everywhere! (thats for the 4x4'ers) there are animals and birdlife to be seen. a small "cave" on site which house the resident Dassies, always hope for python or leopard, you never know! (but seriously in all the years no, theres not been anything we have looked EVERYWHERE).
the trails are easy..except one part if you take it at wrong angle but thats different review entirely so go have a picnic and have fun :D
