What you'll do

Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve is a dynamic experience waiting to be explored in the south of Johannesburg. Nothing comes close to being in nature: smelling fresh air while hiking and absorbing the scenic views in the nature reserve.

What makes this venue special is that it has nine (9) trails to choose from. This ranges from a trail that goes past the historic Marais’ farmhouse (with a wagon shelter) that dates back to the mid 1800's! Other scenic hiking trails allow you to witness the majestic city skyline (and surrounding areas) as a great reward of being part of the experience!

Part of the hike includes experiencing the animals that are found on the nature reserve such as Blesbok, zebra, wildebeest and duiker. This historic venue includes archaeological sites with the Blousbosspruit flowing through the area.

After hiking we'll have a picnic experience (fruits, yoghurt, water & juice), as we enjoy great views and conversation of knowing each other better!

Other things to note
The area is supervised by guards at the parking area, at the gate and around the nature reserve (with guard dogs). Please bring either a phone or camera for taking amazing pics.

This is a hidden gem of experience right here in our own Joburg backyard. Madite will let you tackle the trail at your own pace, whilst enjoying the magnificent views from this historic and refreshing Kliprivier mountain. Enjoy your gossip with your breakfast snack right at the mountaintop.

After going on a hike with Madite last year, I knew that on my next visit to JoBurg that I would schedule another hike with him. The reserve offers many different trails that allow you to see the different topography of the area. Glad I was able to catch up with Madite and explore more of what JoBurg offers outside of the bustling city. I highly recommend this experience.

Definitely the highlight of my weekend in Johannesburg. Madite made me feel completely relaxed about joining the experience as a solo female traveler right from his first message. He stayed in contact regularly before we met, making sure I knew where he'd be and how to find him. The reserve is gorgeous, we had a lovely hike with easy and interesting conversation the whole morning. Would definitely recommend!

Madite is a super friendly guy who is very easy to get along with. He lets his guests set the pace and his passion for the reserve comes through very clearly in conversation. The time flew by and ending the experience over a bowl of fruit and yoghurt was an excellent start to 2020. Highly recommend Joburgers to glimpse this greenbelt with great views of the city

Best experience we have had on our visit to Johannesburg! The preserve is magnificent and Madite tailored our hike to suit our needs . We did a lovely 6 mile hike that included a mix of flat paths as well as some rock climbing. Madite engaged us in insightful conversation and we left feeling like we gained a friend. We saw some horses, wildebeest, zebras and other wildlife. This experience is not to be missed!

Awesome experience! The hike is located in a beautiful nature reserve in the city. I have been to JoBurg many times, but haven't had such a cool unique experience before. Madite is an expert on all things JoBurg, and we had many wonderful conversations on various topics as we made our way through the park. He made sure I was able to see the zebras and springbok, and we were able to make the hike at my pace. Thanks Madite for such a cool hike!
