My friends and I went hiking at Rosemary Hill in Pretoria.
Spanning many acres of land, Rosemary Hill is one of the best places for Hiking in Pretoria with urban wilderness areas in Pretoria.
This organic working farm has been in operation since 1978 and it is a popular wedding venue known for their beautiful cabins, scenic photoshoot areas, and restaurants.
I recently spoke to the Managing Director about their Rosemary Hill Cabins – how they started, the design process, and future plans on my podcast.
I’ve been to the farm a couple of times, for hiking, cycling, wine tasting, and lunch.
If you want to exercise or simply take a stroll, I recommend hiking at Rosemary Hill. They have hiking and mountain bike trails – bike rentals are available upon request.
