If you are looking for a fantastic weekend filled with adventure then make sure you get on the two day Sporekrans trail in the Bergdeel private game reserve. The reserve has a camp with beds, an ablution block and braai spots so you can stay over comfortably the night before the trail starts.
The fourteen kilometer trail begins with a steep start to the top of the krans which is an outstanding lookout point over the valley below. Creep along the rocky outcrops and admire the stunning rock formations. Further along the trail as your descend you will find yourself at the crystal clear rock pools known as mermaid pools where you can swim, explore and relax. From here you can choose the easy or challenging route to the cave where you will be staying overnight.
On day two you will spot an abundance of wildlife and game. Be sure to take your camera with you and ensure you are well equipped before embarking on this trail.
Sporekrans trail is not overly difficult and is suitable for children aged twelve and over. Please ensure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
