The Baviaans Camino is a journey of 95km over 4 days, traversing the Baviaanskloof Mountains and Kouga Mountain Range.
Hikers meet in Willowmore on arrival day, where we all stay in the Willow Historical Guest House. This gives us time to get to know each other and be ready for an early morning start. Route briefing is over dinner.
Day 1 Nakop to Doringkloof, 20km
Day 2 Doringkloof to Modderhuisie, 24km
Day 3 Entkraal to Mooitgedacht, 16km
Day 4 Nooitgedacht to Nguniland, 31km
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.
The 95km hike is split over 4 days, between suitable overnight points where there is a roof over our heads, a donkey to have a hot shower, and flushing toilets. Everything we need for the four days must be taken into the area. We also transport your luggage, hence the need of a support vehicle.
Communication in the Baviaans Wilderness Area is basically non-existent (and absolute bliss) with extremely limited cell phone reception – again the need for a support vehicle and crew in case of emergencies.
In order to make it as cost effective as possible we require a group size of 14.
