Been there many times very safe and all the family can enjoy. Can go up the mountain and have a picnic on top of the mountain and have a great view.

From the old castle on top of the mountain, one has a clear view of North and South Pretoria. The View is extraordinary, and it is understandable why this was chosen as a look out spot by the Boers!

It is a nice and affordable place to braai with Friends, colleagues and Family. My only issue is the lighting is very bad and the toilets are poorly maintained. Either than that, I have been there numerous times, and I have had enjoyable moments.

Walked up the moutain to the Wonderboom fort, that is what remains of it. Nice hike, clearly indicated track. Very enjoyable although part of the hike is pretty steep.

We went for a picnic, it is a safe area for hiking, visit the Wonderboom or if you want to hike to the Fort.

If you enjoy nature and what it has to offer this is a must see. Stand in wonder under the fig tree which is the proud owner of the area's name, take a hike up to the Fort or the Waterfall- both is even better....More

Popped in to see the Fig tree which is a declared champion tree. And typical of something that old, there are legends surrounding it. Ended up taking a stroll along the trails. I was not sorry. The trails are very rocky so ensure you have...More

This is a great opportunity for some afternoon hiking. The trail is not too long and can easily be done in an afternoon (including hanging around at the top to appreciate the view over Pretoria). The view is especially great in October when the Jacaranda...More
