The Vergenoeg hiking trails are situated on the slopes of the Magaliesberg overlooking the Skeerpoort valley and the Hartbeespoortdam in the Northwest Province.

Due to its diverse surroundings and spectacular views, Vergenoeg has always been a popular hiking destination amongst advanced hikers. The walk along the ridge at the top offers a vulture's view of the whole valley below. Their well-marked trails will take you on an adventure although a certain level of fitness will be required to complete the full route, as a reward you will be provided with a privileged view of the endangered Cape Vulture's as they launch themselves from the cliffs into the thermals.

Over 200 bird species and more than 50 indigenous trees have been identified on the Vergenoeg Trails.

Route options:
• Yellow (easy) trail: 3km (80m elevation)
• Red (moderate) trail: 5km (360m elevation)

We will be following the black trail; however, you are welcome to choose shorter route if you don’t feel up to the full route.
