Rietvlei Nature Reserve half-day tour from Pretoria, every TUESDAY

1 review
Just outside the capital of South Africa, lies the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, a sanctuary for over a thousand creatures. This small-group tour, limited to just 15 travelers, takes you on a game drive in a closed, air-conditioned vehicle through the reserve where you can spot game such as cheetah, buffalo, zebras, hippo, and rhinos. National park fees and round-trip transportation from select hotels are included.
US$45,24 per adult

The owner/s are taking advantage of their visitors. The entrance fee of R80 per person was already a bit high but we continued to go there. Last week (01 01 2021) when we were there again we saw, they made the price R100. It is ridiculous. While other many good places around are still charging R30 to R70. Seem, they being snobbish. So, we already stopped going there. The place is lovely, moderate, beautiful but for less fee, there are many other places all around Gauteng.

The trails are marked clearly and the staff is helpful and friendly. A lovely energising hike in beatiful surroundings. It is a pity that the opening hours had to change as a result of covid-19 especially in summer. The last time we were there the river was severely polluted which is not the venues fault but it does detract from the experience

Spent a wonderful few hours walking the Krokodil 10km trail. It took me 4 hrs at a steady pace and taking a lot of photographs. I started at 10 am and was grateful that o had been told to take plenty of water. It was very hot and dry. Please take a lot, especially if you walk the full trail. I was impressed at how well the trail was signposted, everything marked on the map, except one viewing are(but that was logical). Keep walking until you get to the signposts. Never saw any animals, but it was during the heat of the day. Note that there are exit routes if you find the trail too long. You are aware of traffic and of course the Power Station is visible a lot of the time. I enjoyed the blossoms that were out. It may be an idea to signpost “Aloe Valley”, and market it, as it must be beautiful in the winter. The staff were very helpful, including emails and phone calls. I was concerned about walking on my own for so far. This trail is as safe as you will get anywhere in SA and they have had no security issues for some years now. I was very grateful to purchase really cold Cokes at the end of the days walk. You can buy a few snacks and water as well. I only saw 3 other groups of people all day, but it was midweek. I believe the week ends get busy. Really enjoyable outing and hopefully I will be back soon.

I went to Hennops Hiking Trails on a Wednesday and it was really a fantastic experience. I took my 7yr old with me and he thoroughly enjoyed himself. We did the 10km hike in Winter so it was dry and dusty, but the views and wilderness and challenge factor were all on par. It wasn't too busy as it was the middle of the week but one can see the paths are well used and due to it's close proximity to Johannesburg and Pretoria, I can only imagine that it would be quite busy in the weekends. The trails offers varying scenery, some light wildlife and nice little checkpoints along the way to gauge your progress. Overall we had a lovely outing.
