A wonderful trail to do in winter, this overnight backpack trail is a two-day circular trail in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains, with access to some incredible scenery and a good walk that is neither too taxing nor too easy.

Basecamp, with its little thatched lapa, is comfortable with flush toilets, showers, gas stoves, kettle and an outside brai area.

Day one's trail climbs quite steeply initially up the lower mountain slopes, but pretty river pools and views make up for the the parts where the trail gets a little rough. After the first part of the climb, the trail evens out on a plateau, circling under the cliffs, and then again heads up via a gap in the rocks.

The descent is achieved with the aid of ropes to the stone overnight hut - comfortable as far as hiking accommodation goes with a donkey boiler for hot water, flush toilets, bunk beds and mattresses. The flat roof is accessible by a flight of stairs with lovely views over the valley.

Day two includes a fair amount of climbing again, but water pools, views and beautiful bush trails, make it a memorable day.
