Suikerboschfontein – Birthday Backpacking Trail

Suikerboschfontein Hiking Trail – Carolina, Mpumalanga

Wow wow wow … What a great experience!!

The Suikerboschfontein hiking trail is a 2 day backpacking trail that can be started from either of the two overnight camps and it is possible to leave your car at either camp. Do not let this fact make you think that it is not remote enough – because we made that mistake and believe me, both camps are very remotely located with amazing view points. Day one and two is both a 10 km walk to the next camp and can be rated as moderate to difficult at some points.

The accommodation consists of  “Oom Japie’s House” and “Rooikrans Camp”. Both overnight camps are very neat and probably the best that we have seen so far. Both the camps has flush toilets, showers and mattresses for a comfortable stay. There are wooden fueled geysers at both camps as well as “braai” facilities. We LOVED the Rooikrans camp as it is located between and around natural rock formations and pillars which gives it a feeling of sleeping in the mountains.
