The majestic Baviaanskloof Nature Reserve is begging to be traversed by foot, however, the selected north-south route for the Baviaans Camino lends itself for novice horse riders to accompany hikers. Hikers and riders are supported in this remote wilderness area by two vehicles, and overnight accommodation is in farm houses and/or tents.
The trail starts in the Klein Karoo, from where hikers and horses traverse the Baviaanskloof Mountain Range into the Baviaanskloof, and continues to traverse most of the Kouga Mountain Range towards the coast. The trail is 75km long over 4 days and 5 nights.
Hikers and riders meet in Steytlerville where all will stay together to ensure an early start. You will be transported to the foot of the mountain.
You can either arrange transport back to Steytlerville after the hike, or leave your vehicle in Kareedouw and arrange for transport to Steytlerville before the hike.
