Groenkloof Nature Reserve

Groenkloof Nature Reserve

Groenkloof is the ideal place to "get away from it all". The reserve is in Fountains Valley, which is just 5km from the Pretoria city centre, there is no need to travel great distances to experience nature.

Giraffe, zebra and blue wildebeest roam free in this 600 ha nature reserve. This is a unique opportunity to get up close to some of South Africa's wildlife. If you are an avid bird watcher, you will be delighted to know that over 100 species of birds have been recorded at Groenkloof thus far.

This venue has become increasingly popular within the mountain biking community, as it provides a technical 20km bike track through the reserve. The rocky terrain provides for some challenging riding, but satisfying to the experienced biker. For the less experienced biker, there is also a jeep track, which isn't quite as taxing.

If you would rather stay on your own two feet, there are three well marked hiking trails available (3.5km, 4km and 10.5km). You can also get your adrenaline pumping and give the 14km 4x4 track a try. If you feel that you need even more options to choose from, there are guided horse trails available which allow you to gain a different perspective on game viewing.

If you provide your own charcoal or wood, there are beautiful picnic and braai facilitates available under the shade of tall trees. For those that aren't so fond of outdoor eating, there is Moyo restaurant on the reserve. Moyo is well known for their unique African ambiance and African dining experience.

The lapa is available for hire and if you go on a night drive, you will have full use of the lapa until 23h00.
Remember to take some insect repellent, good walking shoes and a camera with you.

Visiting hours are: Daily in summer (September to April) from 05h30 to 19h00
In winter (May to August) from 07h00 to 18h00
