Accommodation

We stay in old and very basic farm houses, and only shared accommodation is available.  You will need a sleeping bag for two of the nights.  All food and lunch packs are provided, and hikers will be required to assist with making fire etc from time to time. You will have to carry a lunch pack and enough water during the day.

Rates

The 93km route is split over 4 days, between suitable overnight points.  Everything we need for the four days must be taken into the area, hence the need of a support vehicle.
 

Communication in the Baviaans Wilderness is basically non-existent (and absolute bliss) with extremely limited cell phone reception.  We have a satellite phone for emergencies.

We transport your luggage, plus firewood, water, food, tents, sleeping bags and more.

These are all the elements we need to really “get away from it all” for a few days, but adds to the costs.

You will also be accompanied by Hercules and Anieka on horseback, with Eric and one more person in the vehicle.

In order to make it as cost effective as possible we require a group size of 14.
