Swartberg Hiking Trail

  • About 4 hours


The Swartberg Mountains offers numerous hiking trails which will meet any hiker's expectations, whether novice or seasoned. From the historical Old Toll House situated on the Swartberg Pass you can undertake casual hikes on any of our two circular hiking trails. Both trails are of moderate intensity and no formal hiking gear is required.

A resident qualified eco guide will take you to the start of the trails. You will be introduced to spectacular sandstone formations dating back more than 300 million years. Feasting your eyes on the full splendor of diverse “fynbos” species ranging from various protea species as well as “cone bush” and “pin cushions”. You may even spot a soaring Verreaux Eagle or Jackal Buzzard while the agility of the “Klipspringer” (small antelope) over the rugged sandstone formations will astound you.

At 1 350m above mean sea level, you will enjoy the panoramic vistas over the northern slopes of the Swartberg Mountains (a World Heritage Site). The tranquility and serenity of this unique venue reflects the essence of a bygone era.
