    Great place, amazing hiking trail. Love the twists and turns though the place and the plus is that the hiking and mountain bike trails do not Intersect too much. The rest the place is amazing and worth the drive to there.

    Don’t do the 15km trail if you doubt your fitness. The last 6km (after the split between the 15km and the 10km) is the toughest and requires grit and mental toughness to get through to the end. Very good training with a backpack if one wants to prepare for multi-day backpacking trips.

    After dozens of visits to Buffelsdrift (about 30 minutes from Pretoria), I remain impressed but the trail maintenance and continual improvements. It's hard to get bored on their 85+km of tracks through beautiful landscapes (not through old dumps). The trails are mostly single-track with a few starter trails. There are long enough easy routes that in-experienced, but somewhat fit, riders can try them out--plus the 7km kiddie trail.
    Compared to many of the farms or restaurants with a mtb-park attached, this is a mtb-park with a restaurant attached. Riders are NOT forced to cram distance through odd serpentines to create distance. Buffelsdrift has the space to create and re-route trails over a vast area, so you feel like you've gone somewhere. Nor will you have to decipher confusing trail markings, double-back, or wander around lost. It's all clearly marked.
    Trail maintenance is year-round and extensive. I've never seen a hazard (fallen trees, broken pallets/bridges, ramps, etc) on a repeated visit. They maintain the trails such as the banks of the fastest sections (eg Supertube) throughout the year.
    The park has been adding in enduro routes (lots of jumps and drops) while keeping the existing trails.
    Parking can fill up, get there as early as you can. The showers are simple and often (not always) have hot water--bring everything else.
    Playground: fine, seldom used, for older children (6 years+). Not much for young children.
    The restaurant is fine enough, but service can be slow and get over-run. I've had to leave with hungry children b/c the all the tables were taken (1/4+ had finished their meals and were lingering)... My family hasn't tried to return there since. I rarely eat there, but it's all worth it for the best riding in the area.

    My husband and I rode the 30km Green Trail and loved it so much that we can't wait to go back! The variety on this trail is phenomenal with a beautiful, peaceful wooded river section, challenging hill section and then fast and adrenaline inducing Kyalami section that left us both wanting more... This is a very well designed one-way, single track trail that you can enjoy to the max. We saw some Wildebeest which was also a highlight.

    A very popular destination among MTB’s but also great for bird watching and just being out in nature. The conservancy is teeming with all forms of smaller wildlife and the restaurant at the MTB center provides for a great snack after the morning out.
