The Eagle Cove Hiking Trails are adjacent to the Kumbagana Game Park located near the Sparkling Waters Hotel and the Magaliesberg Canopy Tours at Kranskloof. The farm has three easy to combine circular hiking trails in terrain with interesting quartz mushroom rock formations and outstanding views. Although the nearby game park is well-stocked, the hiking trails are in a separate section on the farm.

You can see game beyond the fences in the beginning of the trail to the left of the service road before entering the hikers’ base camp. The hiking trails do not lead through the game park itself.

The hikes are well-designed, ensuring you can explore the mountain range. Particularly spectacular is the descent in the Hamerkopkloof on Route 2 which we will be hiking, as you climb down on an aluminum ladder into the gorge with its swimming holes.

We will meet at the parking lot at the entrance and walk to the base camp.

  • 8:40 Arrival - 9:00 Start
  • Distance: 8 KM in total
  • Difficulty: You need to be able to climb up the kloof for 50 meters on a steep slope and handle several ladders into the kloof. Leaving the kloof is hard work as the ascent is steep, but certainly not technically difficult. The hike is easier than Uitkyk.
  • Access: We will open the gate if you arrive on time. If you are late, please call the number on the gate to enter the hiking area.
  • Costs: R80 (including club fee)
  • Packed lunch to be eaten on the trail.
