Transkaroo Adventures Multi-Day Hikes
Transkaroo Adventures offer a 3-day hike: Day 1 (12km), day 2 (19km) and day 3 (9km) hiking trails. The base camp, Wilgefontein, is a fully equipped farmhouse that offers everything that you need for your hiking adventure, including beds with matrasses and safe parking for your vehicles in the barn.
The 3-day hike is a circular route, but you do not head back to base camp each night. You sleep at a different place each night.
Along the way you will see the most fascinating rock formations that are literally thousands of years old and quite unique to the Karoo. You will pass through valleys, past streams and even see some rock art that was left by the San people that roamed these plains many years ago.
In summer you can enjoy yourself in the naturally formed swimming holes while admiring the huge variety of korsmos. Also, be sure to visit the fossilized riverbed.
All the accommodation is equipped with beds, gas lamps, braai (BBQ) facilities, cast iron pots and kettle.
Backpack transport to accommodation is available.
All our trails are clearly marked with “Foort Prints” and maps are provided.
HERE IS WHAT THE FOOTPRINTS HIKING CLUB HAD TO SAY ABOUT THEIR VISIT:
“You report to the main farmhouse where you are given brochures and a good 1:50000 map ( photocopy ) with each day’s routes clearly marked in different colours. You also get the keys to the various “huts”.
Base house at Wilgerfontein was huge. With gas stove and fridge and hot shower, big braai under cover with plenty of wood. With an indoor fire place candles and gas lamps, a big lounge with so many chairs etc that you are spoiled for choice!
Photos from the trail, interesting stones and artefacts provided interesting decor. Secure parking was provided in a barn at the back of the property….”
