Do you want the experts to help you with bird identification? Or how about a rock formation walk with experienced geologist or stargazing with the help of astronomers?

Moreletakloof Nature Reserve offers all these activities as well as nature walks, which also cater for handicapped people or children from special-needs schools. The reserve is for nature lovers and does not have braai and picnic facilities. It’s not geared for big gatherings of people and when the Friends of Moreletakloof arrange their walk/roll challenges, they apply for permission from nature conservation.

The reserve falls under City of Tshwane nature conservation and boasts with springbuck, impala, blesbuck, bushbuck, zebra and ostriches.

There are eight kilometres of pristine pathways, including the Duiker- and the Suikerbos trails, Maintenance road and Rademeyer trial. All are interlinked and the shortest one, the Rademeyer, which runs among the white stinkwood, bush willows and wild peach trees through a wetland, is only 1.5 km and accessible by wheelchairs and handicapped people.

Last year the Friends of Moreletakloof erected the Fluffytail bird hide as well as a wheelchair friendly toilet and rest deck. The Friends work with nature conservation to help them with the upkeep of bridges and removal of invader plants.
