Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve is situated close to the town of Heidelberg in Gauteng, South Africa.
The reserve is a mixture of grassland and mountains. There is 68 km of good tarred roads, which can be driven in a circular way. Halfway is an attractive picnic site with ablution facilities.
The reserve has some animals, but I have never seen much. Some of the popular activities include bird watching, cycling, day hikes and overnight hiking. The reserve is on the highveld, which means that it is cold and dry in winter and in the summer you can encounter a thunderstorm. You must take everything you need with you to the reserve, since there is no shop or restaurant.
