Kingdom Hiking Trail
Kingdom Trails is a 15,000 ha privately owned nature reserve, one of the largest in Mpumalanga and South Africa. This pristine nature area is about 120 km north-east of Pretoria and Johannesburg. Hidden within a natural amphitheatre of the Olifants River Gorge, it encompasses the confluence of the Olifants and Wilge rivers in the escarpment break above Loskop Dam. It is an area of outstanding natural and scenic beauty that includes Highveld grasslands, red granite cliffs with seasonal springs, bushveld woodlands and dense riverine vegetation.
Activities at Kingdom Trails include hiking trails of differing durations and challenges, bird watching, game viewing. The two main hiking trails offer two-day circular hikes of ±16 km and 8 km each. Accommodation facilities include four choices. One of these, a rustic base camp on the banks of the Wilge River, offers accommodation for up to 30 hikers in several separate huts. Numerous indigenous wildlife species occur on the Kingdom Trails property, including kudu, impala, wildebeest and zebra.

Arrival at Jakkalswater Guest Farm. Jakkalswater Guest farm is a nature orientated guest farm, about 13km
outside Springbok (on the Nababeep road) and about 6km from the N7 highway off ramp, in the heart of
Namaqualand in the Northern Cape.
It is situated in the foothills of the granite heads of the Kamiesberg, where quiver trees lookout across the
valley and Klipspringers roam. Jakkalswater is entirely “off the grid” and green.

Hiking with dogs
TRAIL ETIQUETTE FOR HIKING WITH DOGS
If you want to start a heated conversation among dog owners, just ask about their encounters with other dogs on the trail. Hiking with dogs comes with a set of responsibilities that some simply do not understand or just choose to ignore.
