Leopard Trail



What a breathtaking hike!


As we embarked on our Leopard Trail hiking adventure, we looked up and couldn’t believe where we were going, a beautiful and daunting vertical climb that seemed to reach the sky. The height of it all was both exhilarating and challenging, but the breathtaking views that awaited us made every step worth it. As we pushed ourselves to conquer this seemingly impossible feat, we couldn’t help but feel a surge of excitement and anticipation for what lay ahead.

We just had the most incredible adventure in the Cederberg! We were absolutely blown away by the wild beauty that surrounded us every step of the way. The challenging terrain pushed us to our limits, but let me tell you, the reward was beyond anything we could have imagined!

With every stride, we were greeted by awe-inspiring vistas that took our breath away. The feeling of accomplishment and pure joy was indescribable! And to top it all off, we had the privilege of conquering this amazing journey alongside our dear friends.

We faced what seemed impossible and came out victorious, creating memories that would last a lifetime. The Leopard Trail in Baviaanskloof is not just a hike, it’s an unforgettable journey of self-discovery and connection with nature.

If you’re looking for an adventure that will challenge you, inspire you, and leave you in awe of the world we live in, then this is it!


The inviting plunge pools, both natural and man-made, at our accommodation, provide a refreshing oasis.
