Hikes for all levels
Are you looking for the perfect place to go for a hike? We have beautiful hiking trails for everyone who enjoys being outside.
From an easy stroll to a more adventurous hike or climb, we make sure we have well-maintained trails to enjoy.
Trails & Guides
You can choose from different trails, ranging from an easy stroll to more advanced hikes: climbing Christoffel Mountain.
You can do all hiking trails without a guide.
Please commence your hike early in the morning. Bring your hiking shoes and enough water; otherwise the sun will be relentless.
With the help of one of our excursion guides you will be able to explore the park with ample information on flora, fauna, geological formations and historical artifacts. Our guides are highly experienced in spotting elusive wildlife and know a lot about the history of the park and the Savonet plantation.
The comfort of your own car!
Do you want to experience the park from the comfort of your own car? We have two scenic car routes available.
These two routes, the northern route (blue) and the mountain route (green) are paved and you can drive them with any car.
Be sure to turn off your air conditioning when ascending steep parts, or better yet, keep the air conditioning off during the entire trip and experience our climate up close and personal.
