Magoebaskloof Hiking Trail

Apr 29, 2022


(29 April): Arrive & park/stay at Woodbush Hut

All the huts are simple, with a lapa/braai area, flush toilets, cold-water showers and no electricity.

 

Day 1 (30 April) Depart Woodbush Hut to Waterfall Hut (13.8km)

This is a great day to get into the trail. You are immediately transported from the hustle & bustle of everyday life into the magical wonder of the indigenous forests. The day takes you through many crystal-clear streams and some pine plantation, before arriving at a picturesque Dam which you then walk around to get to Waterfall Hut – aptly named because of the beautiful waterfall right by the hut ­- a perfect place for a well-earned cup of coffee at the end of a great first day!

Waterfall Hut not only has the waterfall right by it, but also overlooks the dam you just walked around and is a wonderful viewpoint to overlook throughout the evening.

 

Day 2: Depart Waterfall hut to Dokolewa hut (10.5 km)

There are a few rock pools along the way where you can swim to cool off. You eventually arrive at a wooden bridge taking you directly to Dokolewa Hut which once again is positioned amongst the beauty of this incredible trail – right in front of a cascading waterfall and a beautiful pool of water where one can swim and bath.

 

Day 3: Depart Dokolewa hut back to Woodbush hut (10.5 km)

Magoebaskloof Hiking Trail lies in the incredible Magoebaskloof forest near the small town of Hanaertsburg on the way to Tzaneen in Limpopo. It is a magical gem full of indigenous forest, pine plantation, crystal clear streams and waterfalls. This trail is an absolute-must do for any hiking enthusiast. It has some of the most beautiful indigenous forest in the country and is a perfect hike in summer with all its magnificent streams and waterfalls. However, due to its usually dry winter, it is also a great option all year round.
