Hike in a wonderful nature reserve near Johannesburg among zebra, wildebeest, blesbok and other wildlife with unparalleled views of Johannesburg and its surroundings
The nature reserve was established on March 27, 1974, after several farms were purchased in the area. With over 17,000 hectares, this is a large reserve with plenty of wildlife and hiking opportunities.
This trail designed for this guide combines sections of the 10-kilometer and the former 17-kilometer Bokmakierie trails into a shorter 8.8-kilometer trail. We particularly like this trail as it combines the best the reserve has to offer with its day hikes while it is shorter in distance and easier to hike. It also saves time if you would like to combine the hike with a game drive.
