Hennops River Caravan Park and Resort, Northern Gauteng

Hennops River, Hartbeespoort Dam Area CampingThe Hennops Pride resort is set in pristine nature, really close to the city centres of Johannesburg (45 minutes) and Pretoria (30 minutes). Located in the Hennops River Valley, on the banks of the Hennops River and surrounded by the beautiful Schurveberg Mountains, this camping spot has things for everyone to do.

For the active, there are two moderate hiking trails from the resort. Situated on the 1000ha farm, Skurweberg, the trails meander along the Hennops River at the start and finish, and head off into the surrounding mountains with its bushy terrain, gorges and spectacular views. You may even see game!

The 20km MTB Trail starts at the Hadeda Camp which is situated next to the Hennops River. At the start of the trail, the river must be crossed in a cable car, with you holding your bike next to you – a good warm up. The first section of the track follows farm roads on a working cattle farm.

The second section follows jeep tracks and is more challenging and more fun, crossing the big bumps, differing in difficulty.  The final section runs through grass fields and finishes along a single track next to the river.

Try fishing for carp and barbell along a 2km river frontage or the Hennops River 4×4 Trail and obstacle course next door.
