Phefumula - to Breathe

Oct 31, 2021


Not easy to find, easier to get lost. This 200 hectare farm is a secluded and tranquil southern portal to the 44 000 ha biosphere that is the Magaliesberg ridge. No paths or trail markers here, we rely on our wits to find our way culminating back at the base for a swim and a braai fire provided by our hosts Jenni and David.

8.6 km circular hike via summit and gorge

Contact Glenn on ggstacey@hotmail.com or for more information about the event.

 Lost and exposed to the chill of the up-draft on a cold day or the full sun on a hot day we've experienced both and also the gift of a perfect day as seen above, please pay attention to the weather forecast and bring appropriate protection and 2l of water.

 

 And this will be your reward. An optional extreme descent and access into the Kloof and fresh cool water.

 

This little chap had no difficulty hopping through the long grass and into the Kloof with a few pick-ups.

We have done it before and we won't lose you!

 

 

> Meet at reception at 7h30. We start hiking at 08h00.
