December and apparently the end of the season, there was one more trail after ours before they stop for a month. We have done 3 wilderness trails before and we can't recommend them highly enough as a chance to slowly take in the beauty of Kruger. This time it had a bit of an odd feel to it as there... More

My guests went on this wilderness trial and loved the experience. The Game Rangers are excellent at what they do and as hosts, they were very good. This is a real bush experience so make sure you get the list from San Parks on what to take on the trial. What a way to meet Africa.

We spent three nights on the Wolhuter Wilderness Trail in June, 2015. Our guides Rangani and Moses were very professional and knowledgeable as well as being a pleasure to be around. Our group had an amazing time on the trail and we would definitely go back. The highlight of the Wolhuter Trail is definitely the camp waterhole which is less... More

We hiked the Wohuter trail with friends. the group ranged in age from 40 through 68 years in age. The guides, Rangani and Jacob, made this an unforgetable experience by sharing their knowledge with the group. The hikes were not that difficult and everyone kept up with the pace.

This was our first walking trail in the wild. We enjoyed it immensely! Our guides were professional, informative and entertaining. The walking trail was fun, beautiful and not too exhausting and we saw lots of animals up close or in the distance. The accommodation and ablution facilities were basic but clean. The meals were homely and delicious. We will definitely... More

We were a group of 8 friends. All agreed that this was a fantastic experience. The rangers and cook all deserve praise. It is important that you make your preferences very clear to the rangers on the first night: do you want to spend most of your time doing long walks or would you prefer a balance between walking and...

We recently walked the Wolhuter Trail which was an excellent experience and we had an outstanding, interesting guide. However, unfortunately we had a VERY VERY bad experience. After we stayed in the A-frame houses we discovered we were infested by mites living in the thatched roofs. This is very unfortunate, as it really spoiled our experience. It has left us... More

I recently finished the Wolhuter Wilderness Trail and had an unforgettable experience. There aren’t a lot of write-ups about the trip here, so I thought I’d offer some advice for people thinking about doing this wilderness trail (and I’m guessing these would be useful for other trails as well). First of all is a wilderness trail right for you? Take... More

An absolutely amazing place for all lovers of wilderness. Lots of rhinos; be prepared to run... Fantastic food. Incredibly competent rangers. Accommodation pretty basic, which is part of the charm. Not suitable for people who cant be quiet on walks or who cant cope with bugs. Will definitely go back

Feeling like something different? Wanting to experience the bush in more natural surroundings than driving thru in a car? Prepared to rough it a bit but still want all the basics provided? Looking for a touch of "daring" and excitement but still feel safe? Then consider a Wilderness Bush Trial Walk. You really don't need to be all that fit!... More
