Klipriviersberg Nature ReserveFree: All time

Situated a mere 10 km from the centre of Johannesburg, Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve is the largest proclaimed nature reserve in the Johannesburg Metropolitan area. It 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. Red data and other protected species are also to be found. The Reserve is rated by many as a birding hotspot. Hiking is the main activity in the Reserve. The hiking trails are scenic and vary in distance and in degree of difficulty.
