We did a great 16km trail run through the reserve. There were many hikers and a couple of other runners. The routes are well marked. We saw ostriches, kudu, impala and zebra. I can really recommend Groenkloof!

Great reserve to go have a picnic with the family or to go spend time with nature. The hiking routes are well marked and there is much to see as the reserve has wildlife. The view across to the Voortrekker museum is stunning.

Never been on a horse in my life but it won't be the last. Truly a unique experience getting so close to wild animals. Thankfully none of the dangerous carnivours were here so it eased my nerves but breathtaking scenery and seeing herds of giraffe,...More

With various length hiking trails for everyone, this is a beautiful reserve close to the city but allows you to feel secluded as well. Easily spotted zebra, giraffes and baby giraffes and a lot of other wildlife and birdlife.

This park is full of nature lovers and exercise junkies enjoying the various paths and trails. Go early to avoid the crowds and remember to take money for a snack and drink. You can rent a bicycle or go for horse riding.

We did the 10km hike, was very fun, the trails are challenging and the views are great. Got to see a view of the city from up on top. We also walked a few meters away from giraffes and zebra. Saw ostriches too but they...More

Used to be a nice clean and safe park but lately went downhill a bit. No loud music is allowed which is a good thing. Nice walking and MTB trails.

Have been cycling here for over 15 years. One of the best single trail MTB spots in Gauteng. The routes cater for both novice (stick to Jeep track) and experienced (Single track) riders although the trails aren't marked according to skill level. A really fun...More

Attention! Two days after our visit, walkers were held up at gunpoint on this trail. The same source, the Afrikaans newspaper Beeld (5 May 2015 issue), reported that a second attack occurred at the end of March. Disturbing... More
