The Vulture Trail, Slacpacking Trail,
Bergville, KZN

Exploring the Little Drakensberg Mountains is a feat that many have never attempted before. Being overlooked by most hikers this range of mountains has certainly been given less credit for its beauty than it deserves.

Together, Callum Piccione and Shaun Vorster have created a Slack-Packing trail that will enable the moderate-fit hiker / adventurer the opportunity to take part in exploring this almost undiscovered wilderness, as well as visiting one of the only two Vulture Colonies in the Drakensberg! The Cape and Bearded Vultures have made the Little Drakensberg cliff faces, their home. It is a sight to behold.

Trails on each day cover between 15 - 18 km of contoured trails with some steep climbs, as well as a few fairly steep descending sections (a way to conquer one’s fear for heights and get the adrenaline flowing).

This trail offers the adventure traveller a chance to break away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape to a world of peace and tranquillity, big sky country and beautiful fauna and flora.

A trail that will put one’s busy mind at ease and soothe one’s soul.

Why Slack with Us:
• Undiscovered Little Drakensberg views
• 360-degree views of Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Freestate
• Views of the Amphitheatre and surrounding Northern Drakensberg Mountains
• Wildlife such as: Eland, Bushbuck, Mountain Reedbuck, Baboons, endemic bird species, as well as over 100 other species of birds
• Natural flora such as, Ancient Yellowwood forests
• Enormous sandstone cliff faces and boulders
• An adventurer and photographers dream!

Thabaphaswa Mountain Sanctuary, Day / Basecamp Trails / Pet friendly,
Potgietersrus, Limpopo

Thabaphaswa conceals, in its magnificent natural setting, one of South Africa's best-kept architectural and leisure secrets - an evocative mountain retreat.

Designed by the inimitable Heinrich Kammeyer, the retreat's camps fit into their specific sites as though custom-made - which they were, of course.

The owners' wish to blend nature and the use of natural materials were perfectly executed. Kammeyer understood that the very special quality of the setting demanded a unique architectural vision.

Thabaphaswa provides a wide range of accommodation. (Rates apply for reservations of 2 nights or more. Reservations one night only (e.g Saturday night) @ 1.5 of accommodation rate applicable). Good bushveld firewood and ice are available at the farmhouse.

Three bush camps and two cottages

Accommodation:

Dome Rock Camp:

Huilboerboon at Dome Rock:
• Sleeps 6 persons
• Double room and bed
• One room with two bunk beds

Rooi Ivoor at Dome Rock:
• Sleeps seven persons
• One double room with double bed
• One room with one bunk bed
• One room sleeping three in bunk beds

Maroela at Dome Rock:
• Sleeps six persons
• Double room and bed
• One room with two bunk beds
Kiepersol at Dome Rock:
• Sleeps six people
• Double room with double bed
• 1 x Double Bed
• One room with two bunk beds

General:
• The four units are hidden amongst large rocks at the foot of the Mahlare Mountain.
• There are several dams in the mountain stream that flows by. They are lovely to swim in and there are also two foefieslides/zip lines to glide into the water.
• Sleeping is only allowed inside the units
• All accommodation units have a separate braai and washing up area and are equipped with braai grids, pots, pans, kettles, two-plate gas stoves and solar lanterns.
• There are no fridge or freezer facilities, but we provide cooler boxes to guests, and ice are on sale at the office. A freezer and small fridge are available at the Thabaphaswa homestead.
• In keeping with the rest of the camp, the ablutions are unique (3 toilets and 3 showers). The separate showers are heated by an old-fashioned wood fired "donkey" and are surrounded by reeds, but open to the sky. The flush toilets are affectionately referred to as "loos with views". The entire camp is linked by winding concrete walkways.

Kanniedood:
• A second unusual camp caters for the more agile and adventurous nature lover. The Kanniedood Camp is a triple storey, reed-enclosed stilt shelter built amongst Commiphora (Kanniedood) trees high up on a steep rock face. The cantilevering upper deck offers incredible views over the hills and valley below. The first deck contains bunk beds and mattresses with sleeping place for 14 people. The space between the stilts forms an open-air kitchen next to a communal braai area. Once again ablution facilities (one shower and one toilet) are open air with reed fencing.
• Access to the camp can only be achieved by 4x4 followed by a short, steep climb carrying food and luggage. There are no fridge or freezer facilities, but we provide cooler boxes to guests, and ice is on sale at the office. A freezer and small fridge are available at the Thabaphaswa homestead. A braai grid, pots, pans, a kettle, two-plate gas stove and solar lamps are provided.
• Parking for normal vehicles is approximately 15 min walk/climb from the camp.

Fig Tree camp:
• Fig Tree Camp accommodation caters for groups of up to 16 people on 8 bunk beds with thick mattresses.
• It consists of a lockable reed shelter with a corrugated iron roof adjacent to a communal braai area.
• Basic kitchen equipment (A braai grid, pots, pans, kettle, 2-plate gas stove and solar lanterns) are provided but there are no fridge or freezer facilities. We provide cooler boxes to guests, and ice are on sale at the office. A freezer and small fridge are available at the Thabaphaswa homestead.
• Ablution facilities (two reed-enclosed showers and 3 toilets) are situated approximately 50m away at the Thabaphaswa campsite.

The Pump House (Honeymoon Suite):
• The Pump House is a charming, thatch, fully self-contained cottage/honeymoon suite for romantic couples situated next to the cattle kraal.
• Larger groups often book the Pump House while other members of the group camp nearby. There are an outside toilet and a shower to serve those campers.
• An antique, brass double bed (linen provided), freestanding Victorian bathtub, candles and solar lamps provide the perfect setting in which to enjoy nature.
• It was designed as accommodation for honeymoon couples. There is a lapa outside where one can sit around the fire for a braai. A braai grid is provided.
• We have tried to make The Pump House as accessible and convenient as possible for guests in wheelchairs.

The Cot-House:
• A fully self-contained cottage that sleeps 6 guests. Four guests can sleep in the main Cot-House and two in an outside room with rustic river reed walls. The Cot-House is served by an outside toilet and a shower which also serves visitors camping next to the Cot-House.
• The Cot-House provides for visitors in wheelchairs to be comfortable. The bathroom and outside shower have been designed for this purpose. There are paths around the Cot-House and the lapa/braai area that provide for wheelchairs. Assistants who accompany visitors in wheelchairs stay at 50% of the standard rates. Please see the photos of the facilities for people in wheelchairs.

It offers the following:
• Wheelchair accessible. *
• Sleeps six guests.
• A double bed in the main room.
• An outside room.
• A bathroom and outside showers.
• Two couches/beds in the lounge. The lounge contains a hearth for the off-chance chilly night.
• Kitchen equipment and cutlery in the kitchen area at the back of the lounge. A 2-plate gas stove.
• A cooler box. Solar lanterns and candles to provide light.
• A specially designed lapa with built-in seats around the fire.
• At the back of the house near the lapa, there are tables for preparing and serving food.
• A washing trough for doing washing.
• Hot water for showering and washing up is supplied by an industrial sculpture geyser.
• A double bed has been built as part of the lapa for stargazing and sleeping under the open sky, and to experience the bushveld night atmosphere. Mattresses are provided for this purpose.
• Sleeping areas for a baby and children are also to be found around the lapa and the fire. The Cot-house is surrounded by walking paths and all trails and activities are easily accessible.
• Adjacent to the Cot-house is a camp site that shares ablutions and a lapa with the cottage. It enables guests from the same group to camp on the camping site, and sleep in the cottage should there be different preferences.
• A fridge and freezer are available at the homestead.
• Linen supplied by Thabaphaswa

We made a serious effort to accommodate the disabled in order to expand their limited opportunities to enjoy nature.
The bathroom inside (flush toilet, shower and basin) is fully adapted to cater for the needs of any wheelchair user. There are lovely paths around the cot-house, leading to the "braai"/lapa area and the star-gaze outside shower.
An adjoining room could be used if the wheelchair user has an assistant who requires privacy.
Assistants stay at 50% of the standard rate.

The Cot-House has been renovated to reflect the building style and motives of the Ndebele people who live in this part of the world. This includes cow dung floors on the outside with typical Ndebele decorations.

Camping at Thabaphaswa:

Thabaphaswa continues to experience strong growth in the demand for our camp sites.
Twenty years ago, we started with one campsite. We are now developing new sites and will soon have noticably more than 20.
The reason is that our camp sites are totally different from those mostly found in South Africa at holiday resorts and caravan parks. There is a big need for camping out in the bush and the mountains and to feel part of the African wilderness.
We are well located for camping tourists on their way to countries North of SA, Kruger National Park or the Northern parts of the Limpopo Province.
Our campsites are far apart for more privacy and are spread out in the bush under trees that provide adequate shade. Each can accommodate at least two tents/trailers/caravans, although there are campsites that can accommodate eight tents or more for larger groups of campers.
First time visitors normally do not book a campsite but choose one when they check in. Our many regular visitors soon develop a strong preference for a camp site. Some of them act as if they have made a land claim and get quite upset if someone else dares to book "their site" first.
There are two main areas on the farm where the camp sites are located:
• There are camp sites along the foot of the Thabaphaswa Mountain which include the Thabaphaswa Campsite that caters for larger groups. Nearby is a round farm dam that is great fun to swim in.
• The other area for campsites is along the mountain stream that flows through the farm. There are natural dams in the stream that are great natural swimming pools. Two of the dams have foefieslaaids (zip lines) for a more adventurous way to enter the water. This provides for great fun.
All camping areas have hot showers and reed-enclosed toilets.
Individual campsites have fire pits, braai grids, water taps and dish washing facilities.
We now also have a few movable showers stands that can be provided to campers that wish to take regular cold showers at their campsites.

Linking camp sites to our accommodation:
Some groups of visitors quite often book both accommodation and camp sites
The the Mountain Club of SA often book the Bergvy Camp as well as the Thabaphaswa camp site nearby for their meets for hiking and rock climbing. This is also the approach of the Audrey Riding School for their annual visit with horses.
Family groups sometimes include older persons that prefer to stay in one of our cottages, namely the Ndebele Cot-House or the Pump House. There is a campsite directly next to the Cot-House to provide for this.
Campers share the lapa and ablution facilities with the Cot-House.
There are also camp sites within 100 meters of the Pump House.

Good bushveld firewood and ice are available at the farmhouse.
Please note that we do not have electricity in any of our accommodation. The farmhouse has solar power for emergency use such as charging mobile devices.

Pet Friendly:
Thabaphaswa is one of only a few pet-friendly venues north of Gauteng, and a landmark accommodation venue in the Waterberg area, where dogs are allowed to bring their owners.

For pet owners, it's a challenge to find a place where their dogs can run free and exercise.
Over weekends, dog owners like to take their pets out with them for exercise and some free running. This is especially true if you live in a town or city.
It has become prohibitively expensive to put dogs in kennels, which motivates dog owners to take their pet with them on vacation or away for weekends. It has the added benefit that the family structure and cohesion remain uninterrupted while children are less easily bored.
Thabaphaswa falls in the Waterberg district municipality and is a place where your pets and children can roam free in safety.

Hiking and Trailing:
A network of hiking trails on Thabaphaswa offers the ideal opportunity to enjoy nature at its best and hikers can plot their own route according to personal preferences.

Hiking trails:
• Black Eagle Hiking Trail - 4 hours app
• Blue Trail from Dome Rock to Kanniedood - terrain challenging
• Mhahlare circular trail - 2 hours app
• Tshesane Hiking Trail - 1,5 hours app
• Klipspringer Hiking Trail - 1,5 hours app

Did Kranskloof hiking trail today. Enjoyed the kloof part and the water pools. Just very dissapointed with the marking of the trail
Wat sou julle sê is 'n lekker dagstap in of om Pretoria as mens jou kinders bekend wil stel aan "hiking". Ek wil hulle nie met eerste stap al afskrik nie 🤣🤣
The owner of this webpage is advertising on a "whites only" facebook group. Its a racist business. Dont support them.
Fagala Voet is highly recommendable if you want to hike safely and on wonderful routes
Looks so good and terribly tempting. Wish we were younger and still had our back packs and hiking boots!
Please help a confused hiker.... I made a booking for a hike and my Invoice dates show: Kaapschehoop 2020-01-25 Barretts Coaches 2020-01-26 Does this mean we sleep the 25 - Walk day one the 26th, sleep the 26th and then walk day two the 27th? The lady at the invoice can't help me with this.....
