A pleasant hike with beautiful views. We did a 7km hike with Meetup Solemates hiking group. Took beautiful photos of Zebras.

We had a wonderful and relaxing time when we visited the nature reserve. They have a lovely, clean play ground for kids, hiking trail and 4x4 trail.

If you love hiking, you can check out their hiking trail.

Great hiking trail. Difficult to get information on whether dogs are allowed - rules at the gate however indicate that “no body may bring domestic or wild animals into the reserve”

Great hiking trail with great scenery. The place is brilliant to visit.

Down size are the random people on the trail with speakers and Los music.

All round the place is great and I shall be back

If you like the outdoors and animals you are prepared to overlook many things in and around institutions like this. But to have a day out in the open and observe animals this is a place to go

Well marked trails, pretty easy but some sections were narrow and rocky. Make sure you take water with you. Nice day hiking, nice accommodations and trails were well maintained.

We've done both options of the 5km hiking routes, as well as the 4x4 route. And it is a 10/10 for all of them! It is beautiful scenery, and there are a lot of animals to be seen. Great outing for families.

My wife loves to hike in nature so when we visited Pretoria we asked a friend about a place to go hiking and he brought us to Groenkloof.

We enjoyed our hike up the hill on the yellow trail and then down along the red trail. We were running short on time so we had to cut back along the gravel road, I don't recommend this.

We didn't get to see many animals, only some birds. But part of the reason was that we had to cut our hike short.

To get the most out of the park, I would recommend that you bring along some water, maybe a snack or lunch (makes sure you carry your trash out with you, unlike some who were there before us), and plan to spend 2-3 hours hiking on the trails.

I and my two children aged 10 and 8 did a 10,5km hike and then recovered with a post hike 1 hour horseback tour of the reserve. It was a wonderful experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will be back for sure.

You don't have to travel far to see some wild animals in their natural habitat. You can come here for the day and relax, or just explore for the day. It is only a few minutes from Pretoria CBD.
