Skeurkrans Hiking Trail

Nr Naboomspruit, Limpopo Province


The Skeurkrans Hiking Trail is situated in the Waterberg Mountains not far from Naboomspruit and about two hours drive from Pretoria. It is one of the most picturesque trails in the region and offers hikers of all abilities a real opportunity to enjoy this very beautiful area. The trail consists of two individual day walks from a central base camp. The accommodation consists of three A-Frame wooden huts with bunk beds and mattresses. There is a well equipped braai area with pots, pans, kettle, gas braai, fridge, tables and chairs. Ablution facilities consist of flush toilets, showers and basins. Hot water is supplied by a "Donkey" boiler. Much thought on the part of the owner has gone into the design and development of this lovely camp and it really is one of those places that are really very special.

The trail

The trail consists of two circle routes of 9kms and 5,5kms. The routes afford the hiker a surprising variety of terrain and flora. During the rainy season the veld really comes to life and several mountain streams are to be found along the routes. The views from the mountain tops are quite spectacular.
