As a visitor to Jozi, Walkhaven Dog Park might not necessarily be on your list of places to visit. It nestles in a lovely valley almost next door to the famous Cradle of Humankind.
We visited on a very dull Sunday morning, unusual weather for the High Veld in September.
The area covers some 22 hectares of rolling countryside and has two dams on the property. It was created as a safe haven for dog walkers.
There is a cafe/restaurant on the property as well as braai facilities and lapas. Dogs are welcome in the restaurant.
It is a beautiful sight to see so many our our furry friends running and playing together in such a peaceful setting.
We took the three family puppies there and they had a ball. It is a magnificent place for the whole family to spend time together.
