The Num-Num 2-5 day Trail is situated just three hours from Johannesburg, in the Mpumalanga Highlands between Machadodorp and Badplaas.

The Num-num five-day trail is named after the ‘Forest Num-num’ tree, Carissa bispinosa, easily identifiable by its forked thorns that remind one of a walking stick. The trail opened in 2010 when the three estates, Wathaba, Five Assegais Country Estate and Bermanzi collaborated to create the first 5-day trail on private land in South Africa.

Situated on the lip of the mighty southern African Escarpment, where the continent falls to the Indian Ocean, the Num-num explores some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. The Num-num Trail takes you through this ancient land where the San hunted through secret valleys with waterfalls and crystal pools to the summit of the Skurwerand with views over the Komati valley all the way to the peaks of the Swazi Kingdom.

This entirely new trail has been designed and built to the highest standards by Albert Bossert, and has been graded by HOSA, the Hiking Organization of Southern Africa as a Green Flag Accredited trail.
