The Tsolwana Trail is located in the 7000 ha Tsolwana Game Reserve, located between Whittlesea, Queenstown and Tarkastad, where hikers are treated to game-watching of white rhino, eland, gemsbok and black wildebeest, as well as cultural gems such as San caves and paintings along the Tsolwana Trail.
The 22km long Tsolwana trail takes approximately two days to complete, and has a difficulty rating of moderate. Bush camp accommodation is provided, which contains bunk beds and mattresses, as well as four fully-serviced lodges.
Trails are set out for days and nights, and a guide will accompany visitors. Hikers choosing to stay in the rustic bush camp accommodation must bring their own food. The reserve can be reached from Queenstown via the R61 to Tarkastad, or the R67 to Whittlesea and Fort Beaufort.
