Our fully-catered wilderness trails are
custom-designed, but usually take place over
a period of four nights and have three full days of
Two experienced professional rangers accompany you
on the trail. We have three very different
accommodation and trail-experience options with
which to tailor-make the trails:
Camp - is our luxury tented camp and can be used as
the base for walking out each day. This camp
is sited on the floodplain of the Limpopo River.
Trails Camp - is a very rustic camp comprised of
dome tents and a bush-kitchen and all cooking is
done over an open fire. This camp is located
in our wilderness area.
Roughing it - for these evenings, we sleep on the
ground wherever we may be and usually carry sleeping
bags, sleeping mats, our food, water and all other
essentials with us (although these can be delivered
for us). We sleep around a fire, with
trailists taking shifts in mounting a watch for the
evening, ensuring that we remain safe. We will
usually spend these evenings in areas where there is
no vehicle access.
are welcome to request a trail consisting of any
combination of these options, or maybe decide that
one option is the best for the entire duration of
the trail. We
may use a vehicle to gain access into some of the
better walking areas.
A typical day is made up of two sessions: after a
dawn wake-up and a cup of coffee or tea and rusks,
we head off for a morning walk, which lasts around
four hours. We take regular breaks and rest
halfway through the morning walk at a pleasant spot
to enjoy basic snacks, fruit juice and water. We
then return to camp, have a shower
and a hearty brunch, followed by a siesta. In
the afternoon we go for another walk and return to
camp just after sunset. The evening meal is served
about an hour later around the camp fire.
We supply lightweight backpacks and water bottles
for use on the trail. The trail covers between 8 and
12 kms per day, depending on the level of fitness of
