Enjoy the panoramic views from the hills near the Hennops River at a popular weekend destination in a pristine environment
Within a 30 minutes’ drive from Pretoria is the Aloe Valley Meander. It is a peaceful hilly area named after the mountain aloes’ forests on the slopes of the Schurveberg mountain Range. The area is home to fine restaurants, resorts and spas/wellness centers and provides accommodation options.
The hiking path is well-marked with orange trail signs and starts at the swimming pool. You initially walk in flat terrain near the lodge area for some 2 kilometers until you reach the Ponte d’amore (Bridge of Love) over the Hennops River. It is a popular place for newlyweds and lovers seeking confirmation as legend says that “lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss if they kiss at sunset on this bridge.”
