Situated in the east of Pretoria on the Bronberg section of the Magaliesberg mountain range, Hedianga Farm offers an exciting new trail running, mountain biking, birding, and walking experience. This old mountainous region lies between Garsfontein and Graham Road (Lynnwood Road extension) south-east of Pretoria. Hedianga Farm covers an area of 140 hectares, and includes a number of ecological zones, incorporating quartzite ridges as well as grassland areas. It is home to a remarkable diversity of plant and animal life. The Bronberg extension of the Magaliesburg mountain range is likely to have been occupied by early hominids similar to those found in the Sterkfontein caves, the “Cradle of Humankind”.
