pp hiking waterfall

Walks or hikes in and around Paardeplaats are one of the best ways to truly immerse yourself in the Lowveld beauty, as you breathe the fresh air and drink in the crystal clear views.

Take a guided walk or head out yourself as you gaze at bursts of colour, get some exercise, and return with a clearer head

pp guidelines

Enjoy an entrancing stroll through on one of the seven well-marked circular hiking trails on the Jafrie Walking trail or the more revitalising Cycling Ramble up our flower clad mountains Then you will begin to understand what makes Paardeplaats quite so special. From Gurney sugarbirds sipping from a flower to infinite mountainous vista that leaves you breathless, surprises await you around every corner.

pp hiking picninc

Lace up your hiking boots for a self-exploring walk or hike along the designated hiking trails to the nearby goldmine (15 minutes) down the river to the top of the waterfall (30 minutes)

The rich chorus of birdsong that surrounds you at Paardeplaats tells you immediately that bird watching here will be extraordinary. Pack a picnic lunch, grab your walking stick, binoculars, bird book and tackle one of the longer routes

PP hiking with friends

Glimpse rare sightings on special guided walks or simply spot the beauty and colour as you walk around the lodge. Do not be surprised when you encounter some game along the way.

Laura Koschade Hello travelers! I would love to visit SA and explore as much as I can, but I don't yet know the best way to get around. Do people usually rent a car if they're staying for a while and want to explore a wide area? And is that safe for a solo traveler? It seems like that option would be pretty pricey, and I've heard that the area can be dangerous. I would love some feedback! 😊 Thank you and have a fabulous day! 🐘

Gaby Pijpers I always travel alone in SA and the bus is the cheapest way, i can recommend intercape bus and city to city but please avoid johannesburg busstation! You also have the bazbus but that one is very expensive. 22 Jan 2018 - 13:30
