About Black Wildebeest Hiking Trail

The Black Wildebeest Hiking Trail is a 2/3-day backpack trail, which starts off at the bottom of the Van Reenan Pass in KwaZulu-Natal.

The precise start of the trail is located at Siggy's base camp. The first day kicks off with a climb next to a fast-flowing stream. Accent onto the plateau is done via a ladder. The rest of the trail cuts through undulating grassland hills, which provides a lovely scenic view on the path. Game sighting is plentiful and adds a lovely element to the trail. The trail ends at the river camp.

The 2nd day trail returns back to base camp, starting off with a steep incline to the top of the plateau. The route then follows a decent into a valley, followed by an easy last stretch.

Difficulty: easy to moderate;
Distance: 14 km, and 26 km if you decide to extend the hike to the 3 day variation.
