We offer a 3 day hike: Day 1 (12km), day 2 (19km) and day 3 (9km) hiking trails.The base camp, Wilgefontein, is a fully equipped farm house that offers everything that you need for your hiking adventure, including beds with matrasses and safe parking for your vehicles in the barn.

The 3 day hike is a circular root, but you do not head back to base camp each night. You sleep at a different place each night.

Karoo Hiking - Scenery

Along the way you will see the most fascinating rock formations that are literally thousands of years old and quite unique to the Karoo.

You will pass through valleys, past streams and even see some rock art that was left by the San people that roamed these plains many years ago.

In summer you can enjoy yourself in the naturally formed swimming holes, while admiring the huge variety of korsmos. Also, be sure to visit the fossilized riverbed.

Base house at Wilgerfontein was huge. With gas stove and fridge and hot shower, big braai under cover with plenty of wood. With an indoor fire place candles and gas lamps, a big lounge with so many chairs etc that you are spoiled for choice!

Photos from the trail, interesting stones and artefacts provided interesting decor. Secure parking was provided in a barn at the back of the property….”

Hiking Gallery

Beste Elmarie:

Hier is so 'n paar fotos wat ek tydens die staptog geneem het. Ingrid en ek
het die drie dae baie geniet. Die eerste en derde dag was vir ons die mees interessantste. Dag 2 is ietwat lank - veral vir die winter (kort dae). Die staproete bied 'n uitstekende indruk van die Karoo landskap op sy beste.

PS: Die toegeyste poeletjies was 'n besondere verskynsel. Is dit gevriesde
sneeu of ys wat hier en daar ontstaan het?

Vriendelike groete,



Baie baie dankie vir die goeie terugvoer. Ja julle het verseker die karoo op sy koudste ervaar. Die waterpoeletjies is gevriesde water en watervalletjies - wat 'n pragtige gesig. Die fyn wit op die grassies was die sneeu. Julle het verseker pragtige herinneringe wat julle saam met julle kon terugvat. Groete aan Ingrid. Lindo en Elmarie .
