A group hike on Melville Koppies Central (5th April). We hiked up to the highest point to enjoy the beautiful views. Young and old had a wonderful afternoon. Melville Koppies is an easy way to introduce children to nature because the reserve is only as big as the Joburg Zoo. We do not have the big five either so visitors walk the trails on the group walks. The website www.mk.org.za has details of open days and school tours. 

 

Calling all young nature-lovers.

  The Koppies have something for all ages and for so many interests. The only people we don’t cater for are ‘mall strollers’.  We are now open on the first four Sundays of every month, alternating afternoons and mornings.

The Koppies are an ideal place to introduce children to nature. Melville Koppies Central is only 50ha, about the size of the Zoo. One does not have to cover the whole reserve in one morning. Different sections can be explored  at different times. The archaeological site has information boards and a cool hut to relax in. There are wooded Acacia forest full of birds. The grasslands are at present dotted with exquisite little flowers. The arboretum is a shady wooded area with giant Stinkwoods and River bush willows forming a green canopy over the spruit. The whole reserve is meticulously maintained by volunteers.     Park opposite the entrance at Marks park Sports club in Judith Rd, Emmarentia. Donations welcome. Details 011 482 4797
