Unmissable hiking in the Baviaanskloof
Baviaan comes from the Dutch word for baboon, which is something you’ll be sure to encounter on your hikes through this majestic part of the country. Your day begins with an early start, just as the sun peeks over the horizon. The hiking trails range from beginner footpaths to experienced crag climbing.
Baviaanskloof is considered a world heritage site, containing seven of South Africa's eight biomes, with aloes, spekboom, fynbos, and 17 protea species. It is also home to the Cape Leopard. But don’t worry, they are far more interested in the baboons than you. Not only is this area a nature lover’s dream, but it should also be on every adrenaline seeker’s to-do list. With 4x4 tracks and rock climbing, you’ll never be short of pockets of adventure along the way.
