Faerie Glen Nature Reserve is a small, but surprisingly diverse and beautiful, reserve inside the city of Pretoria (Tshwane). Great for short hikes, trail-running, bird watching and picnics.
The reserve has a number of trail loops that range from 2 -4km on either regular, flat, walking trails along the riverside, to moderate and strenuous climbs to the top of the 2-3 koppies inside.
There is a good bunch of introduced game including Impala, Zebra, Nyala and Rooi Hartebeest.
Entrance is R16 per person. The parking and security is great. Dogs allowed on leashes. Open 6am – 6pm (Summer & Winter).
