Outdoors: Melville Koppies

Johannesburg

Make those New Year resolutions to shift some lard and spend time engaging in meaningful healthy activity with a three-hour guided walk of the Melville Koppies.

There are frequent stops to appreciate the area’s flora, wildlife, ecology, three billion years of geology and its history as an urban nature reserve. The Melville Koppies are said to be the last conserved remnant of the city’s ridges as they were before the discovery of gold in 1886 and offer a remarkable example of the rich indigenous landscape that once covered what is now a thriving metropolis.
