What an awesome place to visit for a day - you can walk, cycle, do horse riding or have a picnic with family or friends. Beautiful and so quiet, you don't even realise you are in the city.

Today we walked the 4.5 trail, which is just very nice. Not too difficult and it takes you through a variety of flora (bush, grass, rocky). Downside: one can hear the noise of traffic in the background.

Groenkloof nature Reserve offers a number of hiking trails that one can do - but be careful - you should never do this alone - always in a group - preferably not less than 3 people together.

This was our first visit to a Safari park. The accomodation was very good, the meals were ok. The afternoon/evening safari tour was a bit dissappointing, 2.5 hours without much wildlife.
