Elandsvallei Trail

Nestled in the valley gorged out by the Elands River over millions of years lies this beautiful hiking trail.
It is on the 1,800ha Lindenau farm. This is a backpack trail and should be regarded as quite difficult, especially in hot weather. (More...)

Fanie Botha Trail

The whole trail is five days long although there are two and three day shorter options available. (More...)

Kaapschehoop Trail

This trail consists of several individual trail sections that can be combined together to form a trail of between two and five day duration. There are four trail huts, each ideally placed to enable the hiker to explore the beauty of the area.
