Lanseria, Gauteng

Untouched for a few years, Mountainview is a private property north of Lanseria airport on the R512. It offers breath-taking views over Johannesburg in the far distance and the hills of the Crocodile River Reserve. Its northern fence line is shared with the Lion Park. The entrance gate to Mountain View is 45 minutes from Sandton and only 10 minutes up the road from Lanseria International Airport. 8 km further up the road you will reach the Crocodile River and scenic Hartbeespoort Dam in 18 minutes.

The habitat offers a variety of bushveld, grassy savannah, and a patch of riverine forest. The ground is mostly sandy with some rocks, and several stretches of Pelindaba rocks to navigate. Discover Pumba Pools, Zebra Plains, Ostrich Run, Eland Cove, Lionsgate, Outlook Koppie, J-View, Pelindaba Fields on your ride.

The three routes are ideal for walking, hiking, and mountain biking, and we are open on weekends only.  MTB Trails use the wide, well-marked fire breaks. Bring your own food & drink and have a picnic after your activity. Thanks to the absence of cars and other visitors, the game viewing is exceptional!
