Five Assegais Country Estate is proud to offer two spectacular hiking trails on a thousand hectare fenced nature and game conservancy. This two day trail (12 km and 5 km) has been designed and built by Albert Bossert to the highest standards of beauty and safety.
This beautifully laid out path takes you over the Skurwerand, a spectacular landscape of wind and water eroded ancient sandstone, filled with yellow wood trees and aloe gardens with views over the Komati valley all the way to Swaziland.
The trial then plunges into the Bankspruit gorge taking you past crystal pools and rapids through a pristine gorge forest to the foot of the second highest waterfall in Mpumalanga, then out of the gorge and across old veldt pastures filled with game back to the hiking camp situated on the very edge of the escarpment.
