B'sorah Hiking Trail

Jul 28, 2019


Hidden among the bushveld of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains, B’sorah is situated near the Hartbeespoort Dam, less than an hour away from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Despite being so close, you will find yourself in a totally different world – Africa at its best.

The 1600-hectare farm consists of dense bush, open grassland and riverine vegetation which runs along streams flowing into the Skeerpoort river. Game includes kudu, nyala, waterbuck, impala and blesbuck, as well as warthogs, baboons and nocturnal species such as brown hyena and jackal. Here you can relax in a natural environment where the twitter of birds, the presence of roaming game and the trickle of a gentle stream is all that surrounds you.

Luxury tented accommodation is available should you wish to make a weekend of it. Contact B’sorah directly for further information about the venue.

We will be doing the 12 km trail which runs along the Skeerpoort river and a very old canal still in use today, and which for the very brave includes a designated swimming area in the river. At the point where the Skeerpoort river passes the farm, it is still very clean and safe to enjoy a nice cool down in the river. The trail then continues to its highest point (1420 m), before descending back down to join up with the 7 km trail before reaching the koppies.

  • Following the hike you will be free to picnic or braai at the recreational area near the carpark.
  • Meet at the parking area ready to leave for 08:30
  • There is a small shop at the parking which provides coffee and snacks
