Nature reserve


The Kloofendal Nature Reserve is situated in the suburb of Kloofendal, Roodepoort. It is on the west side of Johannesburg, midway between Westgate and Clearwater Mall. The entrance is on Galena Street, between Topaz and Ouklip Roads, in the suburb of Kloofendal.

It is a 110 hectare reserve within easy reach of the centre of Johannesburg and consists of pristine Highveld vegetation with craggy quartzite outcrops. There is a bird hide at the small dam on the reserve and a while spent here can be well worthwhile. The wildlife on the reserve is restricted to smaller creatures but it is surprisingly varied. Many Highveld tree species have their home in the reserve. The reserve also is home to the first mine on the Witwatersrand, which is a national heritage site. This enclosed area can only be visited by special arrangement.

Guided or Self guided walks


Walks can be self guided or one can join one of the excellent trails lead by a qualified field guide. Take a picnic and enjoy the day out. Explore the paths that crisscross the reserve. Visit the bird hide and spy on our feathered friends. The amphitheater area inside the reserve has picnic and ablution facilities. The Mine Shaft (Confidence Reef) is fenced off and can only be visited with a guide. A security guard (paid by Johannesburg City Parks) is on duty every day.

Please be aware that dogs are definitely not allowed in the Reserve. Guided walks are 2 hours, usually longer. Booking essential to assist with numbers.
