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

Wow, it was such an amazing bush/nature experience. No electricity and only outside bathrooms and showers! Arrived on Friday evening, we were a group of 8 friends. Dinner was served around the fire (compliments to the chef)!. Awoken very early in the morning, served with tea and biscuits before the long walk. Amazing experience. Moses and Rangani (our rangers) were... More

Our guides, Rangani and Moses were excellent. Very knowledgable, experienced and great at tracking the animals. They could really explain in great detail all that we were seeing and experiencing, far beyond our expectations. Note that you will walk, a lot... For those not prepared then don't bother but note that you are probably missing an experience of a lifetime.... More

Our guide Jannie was an absolute joy. He is contracted by SANPARKS to conduct the walk and his knowledge and skill is par excellence. Accommodation: Simple A Frame hut... raised and sleeps two in single beds. Walking: The walk takes place in the southern region of Kruger and covers some spectacular bushveld. Magnificent scenery, prolific bird life and a wide... More

My partner and I took part in the Wolhuter trail recently and had a fantastic experience. A brief overview of the trail: Day 1 - late afternoon, meet at Berg-en-Dal and transport to camp (1 hour). By the time you arrive it will be early evening, time enough for a camp overview and then an early bed. The camp is... More
