This is our first official visit to this splendid venue, a game farm situated in the escarpment region west of the Loskop Dam, about 130 km from Pretoria & 150 km from Johannesburg. The landscape consists of bushveld plains where there is a good chance of viewing abundant game, surrounded by grassy ridges affording splendid views of the plains extending towards the Loskop Dam. The variety of carefully planned & meticulously created trails reward hikers with the very best of what the beautiful landscape has to offer.

From the Rooikrans chalets, we will be hiking the Draadkloof & Koedoekloof trail, a circular route of approximately 11 km. We will enjoy the bushveld plains & valleys, ravines, & the elevated grassy ridges above the escarpment.

You will be free to go off for lunch after the hike, or join us on the beautiful shady lawns surrounding the chalets for a picnic lunch or braai. There is a rock pool in which to swim in a ravine close to the camp.

Accommodation is available in the Rooikrans Overnight Camp chalets should you wish to make a weekend of your trip to this beautiful region of South Africa. The booking agents are Jacana Travel Marketing & Reservations. There are a few nearby guest farms also offering accommodation.
