Call it fate, call it fortune, we call it GROUND… Where It Begins. Based out in Muldersdrift, bordering the Cradle of Humankind, sits our charming and unique venue. Surrounded by world heritage, an evolution began at GROUND, as it did humankind; naturally, miraculously, and beautifully. The foundation of GROUND was built around it’s natural beauty and vegetation, and enhanced by locally imported vines from Cape Town, lawn from Magalies, and trees from all over the country. The fruition of GROUND is forever immanent as the inherent surroundings continually grow and inspire us with new ideas. GROUND is an artist’s canvas, where ideas and special occasions come to life. It may be somewhere you might indulge in a jazz, wine, food or music festival, a gorgeous wedding venue, lunch between the vines or even just a humble picnic in the forest – our venue lends itself to an incredible range of experiences.


Ground offers marked walking or running trails on the mountain for you and your furry friends to enjoy!


The trails vary between 4 – 9km.

There is also a pram friendly route, so bring the Active pram or Thule along. 


Please note that the trails are not guided. There are markers and arrows which will show you the routes. There will be a map viewable upon your arrival and you can decide on your route for the day.


Hikes can be paid for upon arrival at the hiking station.

Please note that Walking Trail Option 1 does not need to be pre-booked.
