* Klipriversberg Nature Reserve and Hiking Trails:
It is the largest proclaimed nature reserve in the Johannesburg Metropolitan area (Over 700 ha. in extent) and boasts a surprising diversity ranging from larger game such as zebra, red hartebeest, and black wildebeest, to many items of botanical, geological, archaeological, historical and cultural interest. The Reserve is rated by many as a birding hotspot. Despite not having any wetlands of significance, more than 215 bird species have been identified. Hiking is the main activity in the Reserve. The hiking trails are scenic and vary in distance and in degree of difficulty. A three hour hike along the flatter areas can be completed by most people who can manage three hours of shopping. The steeper, hilly areas can be testing for even the fit.
