While I chose to stay at The Holiday Inn, Johannesburg and make a day trip to The Reserve, you may choose to extend your visit by staying overnight. They have several well-maintained chalets that offer an authentic wild atmosphere – no Wi-Fi or TV to distract you from the sights and sounds of nature. Alternatively, there is also a wide range affordable options in near-by Krugersdorp Town.
Where to Eat
What most people love about this Nature Reserve is that it is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The Reserve has five restaurants including an open barbecue area and a couple of cafes. You can relax under the shade of trees and enjoy a barbecue or a picnic with your friends and family.
A traveler at heart, I have been to 22 countries on 6 continents. My favorite experiences are plunging in to sub-zero Antarctic waters, renovating a Buddhist monastery in Sri Lanka and hiking Borneon jungles. I am also an engineer, a public speaker, a sustainability believer and a polar explorer. Follow my misadventures on www.passportuncontrol.com and Instagram @geeknextdoor
