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

We have been hiking twice with smaller kids and every time we are happy we did it- but I must warn you the trails are a bit confusing and we never know which one to do and always end up walking for 4 hours 😂...More

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.
