Hiking/Trail running

5 km Rooi-ivoor trail (advanced)
5 km Visarend Trail (Easy)
10 km Trail

Hiking/trail running at Die Bosveld is a special experience. Not only is the area steeped in history with old Ndebele stone kraals dotting the koppie, but it also boasts a variety of unique trees like the mountain seringa, red ivory, kraalnaboom, giant euphorbia, a selection of giant rock figs and more! Rocky outcrops offer spectacular views from above.

5 km Rooi-ivoor trail (advanced)

The Rooi-ivoor trail starts at the trail centre in a beautiful shady, tree-rich area and lazily winds its way around the contours of the koppie behind the trail centre. When you are nice and warm, the gradient picks up sharply for a punchy climb around the koppie. The entire trail is under cover of the trees and surfaces here and there, long enough for you to admire the incredible views from the top! Be sure to keep an eye out for kudu in the koppie! 

*Please note that this trail is for the experienced hiker/runner only. Allow around 2 hours for completion.

5 km Visarend Trail (Easy)

The Visarend starts at the trail centre and follows the same route as the Rooi-ivoor initially. At the trail fork, the Visarend turns away from the koppie into the bush. The trail meanders through dense bushveld trees, open grassland, hugging the Ronan Erasmus dam whereafter the trail veers off along a tributary of the Apies River further downstream. A scenic mix of Savannah bushveld, river trails and forest walks characterise this extraordinary route.

*This is an easy hike. Allow around 1 hour for completion.

10 km Trail

The two trails combined form a figure-of-eight hiking route, perfect for the fit and experienced hiker/runner. You will pass by the trail centre where you can stop for refreshments before switching trails.


*Allow around three hours for completion.
