  • The hike will start at 0700 h in the summer months and 0800 h in the winter months, from the conservation offices at Kogel Bay. This mountain trail is a 10 km return hiking trail up the mountain. The ascend is just under 5km long and it takes about 3.5 hrs to ascend the mountain. The trail is a lovely zig-zag path traversing up the mountain and all along the way guests are spoiled with stunning scenery and views.

  • Once at the top of the trail and at our halfway point we settled down for rest, a picnic lunch and some coffee before we embark on our descent again.

  •  With rest and lunch over, we make our way down the mountain again while enjoying the afternoon sun that brings along the fabulous sunlight on the mountains.

  • After a full day out on the mountain, we will be back at the start by about 1730h.
