Untouched for a number of years, Mountain View is a private property north of Lanseria airport on the R512. It offers breathtaking 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 and Pelindaba Fields on your visit.
All trails are sign-posted and can be enjoyed for mountain biking, hiking or trail running:
Blue: 4 km circular around the main house via the outlook koppie
Yellow: 9 km via panorama ridge (view over Jo’burg), central plains, Lion Park fence, game enclosure and outlook koppie
Red: 11 km along the southern, eastern & northern fence lines through Pelindaba rock fields, riverine forest and central plains
