      Tucked away in the Olifants River Valley, just 25km outside of Middelburg and Witbank and a short 90-minute drive from Pretoria and Johannesburg, the Bezhoek Private Nature Reserve is a rare gem.

      With abundant wildlife roaming free on 5,000 hectares of pristine nature, and more than 200km of single and double track hiking, trail running and mountain biking trails, Bezhoek lies ready to be explored.

      Our Mission is to Restore. Protect and Conserve this irreplaceable jewel, including its critically endangered cycad populations, for generations of South Africans to come.

      Bezhoek offers a number of marked trails and routes, from 6 to 120 kilometers, that cater for hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers and birders, young and old, from novices to experts. The game drives and trails take you through the most pristine areas along river courses, over the cliffs with natural crystal clear streams, exquisite rock formations and abundant wildlife, and offer the most beautiful views of the Olifants River Valley.
