first weekend trail of the New Year is the Serendipity Eco Trail in the
Only 220km from
near Modimolle (Nylstroom) this is a real bushveld trail experience. The
camp site and other accommodation, set under trees in
the Tierkloof valley, are truly rustic. There are kitchen facilities with fridge and gas
stoves, washing-up basins, braai areas and electrical points between the
camp spots. Toilets are rustic, but very clean. Hot water via Speed Heat
shower heads ensures that you will not run out of warm water. Johann (the
owner) is very serious about keeping these facilities clean and his
staff is there twice a day to ensure they are clean as well as emptying
dustbins and fireplaces of ash. The camp site is filled with bird life
and you could encounter game walking in to check on your behavior.
are two trails stretching over an unusual combination of mountains,
valleys, streams and savannah sand veld to include all types of driving
situations offering something for all levels of experience. The day
trail of some 20km is an ideal family adventure trail and will not
damage vehicles or egos. There are stops for swimming in crystal clear
rock pools, a dam to play in and some of the best bushveld around. Game
species include wildebeest, zebra, impala, giraffe, kudu and many more.
The shorter trail is more difficult and challenging for the more
experienced driver and will be done on Sunday morning.

to camp there are many other accommodation facilities available.There is
a choice of rustic chalets spread over a large area to ensure privacy.
The chalets require you to bring your own bedding and towels and in some
