      Tucked away in the Olifants River Valley, just 25 kilometers from the town of Middelburg in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa, 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 African grassland and bushveld, and more than 200 kilometers of natural yet well maintained hiking, trail running and mountain biking trails, Bezhoek lies ready to be explored.

      Bezhoek offers a number of marked trails and routes, from 6 to 120 kilometers, catering for hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers and birders - young and old, novices to experts. The trails take you through the most pristine natural areas - magic riverine forests along the banks of the Olifants and Klein Olifants rivers; ancient cycad populations; majestic cliffs, gorges and vistas; crystal clear rivers, streams and pools; waving grasslands; exquisite rock formations; abundant wildlife - and offer the most beautiful views of the Olifants River Valley.

      Come sample our warm hospitality, feast at our sumptuous table, play on our exciting trails, commune with our abundant wildlife, or just soak in the tranquility and beauty of the pristine African landscape. You will love Bezhoek and Bezhoek will love you. ❤️

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