2-day Hogsback Mountain Hike

Do you looooooove hiking, enjoy nature and are dying to meet new and like-minded people? Come and join us on our 2 day mountain hiking adventure. We get together at 8am at the Spar in Hogsback for a 2-day medium to (sometimes) difficult (beginners must be really fit) circular loop.

With Elliot, our local tour guide, you’ll visit the 39 steps waterfall, descent down through indigenous forests, pass traditional Xhosa villages and make your way to Elundini Village. Sleep over at Elundini Backpackers in dorms with duvets ( just bring towels), and hike back up the following day into Hogsback town via the Plaatjieskraal dam where you can have a summer dip. A sense of living guaranteed. You’ll end up back at the grocery store.

All this for R590, including: guided 2 day hike, 1 night accommodation in a dorm (Sat.), dinner and breakfast.

Accommodation possible on Friday evening at Elundini Backpackers for just an extra R290, including dinner, bed and breakfast!!! We’ll provide free shuttle to starting point of hike! Otherwise there is secured parking arranged at Hogsback police station. Your luggage will be dropped off at the overnight sleeping place, so you only have to carry a day pack.

What to bring: good tekkies with good grip/hiking boots, lunch and snacks, water, sun block, bandages for blisters, camera and torch.

Do you doubt if you are fit enough? The first day is a hike of 22 km with 2 descents and 1 climb. This is a though day. Day 2 is 17 km with one climb and nice level parts afterwards. If you consider yourself having a fair fitness level, it’ll be tough sometimes but you’ll be fine!!! Maximum 10 people per group so book your spot now!!!
