Our tip: if you're a flyfishing fan, this hike is for you

A game farm just outside the village of Dullstroom - with its little pubs, restaurants, guest houses and opportunities for trout fishing - is the site for two circular hiking trails of 13 km and 6km respectively that, when combined, make up a weekend's worth of hiking. Alternatively they can be walked as individual routes.

Accommodation for both evenings is the Groot Poot Camp, a large farmhouse that sleeps 24 hikers in two open-plan bedrooms with 12 beds in each, a lounge with a fireplace, and separate ablutions with hot showers and a large, equipped kitchen.

Day one is the Ribbok Route of 13 km that skirts the edge of farm before descending down to cross the river, leaving it behind as the route then takes hikers to the top of the hill and down to a waterfall, where one can lunch and spend time in the rock pool. Home ascends again before re-crossing the river back to camp.

Day two is the Trout Route of 6 km and an easier route all round, following the river for a while. It too has water as its focus.
