Great nature bike, walk and picnic area in the centre of the greater Pretoria. Very safe and big enough to spend hours on a bike or a hike. Great picnic with the family as well.

The groenkloof nature Reserve lays in the middle of Pretoria. You can watch animals or make tour on the mountain bike. Also horseback riding is possible.

Beautiful hiking trails and biking trails. Nice, clean, shaded braai area. Even a play area for small children. Seeing giraffe on the hike is always a highlight.

Nice trails. However muggings and attacks on people will keep me away along with lack of security. Also no restaurant what so ever! Stay away

Such an awesome experience during the hiking....watching animals while we at it. While the plan was for 10km hiking trail, we ended up doing 15km without even realising it. Fitness and Fun!!

We live only 3 minutes drive from here and frequently visit the reserve. It's always lovely to see the animals up close in this peaceful environment

Some nice hikes with quiet areas and good views of the city. We didn't see much wildlife but still enjoyed it. Parking was plentiful and there weren't too many people
