We stayed over in the hikers huts, enjoyed two days of hiking and a fun evening at the lapa. This venue is suitable for family outings and gatherings. The hiking routes might be a bit too difficult for younger hikers, but are great for the average day hiker. We booked use of the lapa and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The... More

The family slept over in the cabins it was very exciting and refreshing to wake up to the neighing of horses. Beautiful scenery and well kept reserved. Was surprised at the different wild life we saw. The horse biking and 4x4 trails are a must

A conveniently situated and nice hiking trail when you only have a morning to spare. There are various paths so you can hike 3 different times and cover little of the same ground. I always see plenty of game despite or perhaps because it is such a small reserve and it also has nice picnic places under huge trees for... More

The hiking trail is well managed, very clean. Get to see zebra and other wild animals just a few meters from you. Remember to carry some water with you. Its a long walk back to the nearest tuck shop

New 4x4 enthusiasts can safely test their vehicles capabilities in this reserve. This can be a lovely day out for the whole family. Pack a picnic and enjoy the wildlife. The 4x4 route is fun and you have a choice of difficult or not so difficult...

Fairly close and easily accessible by bike from many neighbourhoods (or many people bring their bicycles by car). Botha Avenue has a nice and wide shoulder for cyclists, as does R21 towards Fountains Circle. George Storrar Drive towards Brooklyn is also safe, in my view. I enjoy the different skill level routes, but came with someone who already knows the... More

Went there for family pictures and picnic. Although there are clear rules when you enter it seems like this applies only to certain guests. There where groups of people drinking, shouting and playing loud music. They shouted at us when we parked nearby. This was brought under the security's attention and they advised that they will not do anything about... More

The reserve is beautiful, especially after the rains. With the safety concerns having been addressed, more and more mountain bikers are returning to the magnificent trails!
