Magoebaskloof Getaway Hiking Trail
There is a beautiful hiking trail on the farm where you walk through breath-taking natural forest, and come upon some beautiful waterfalls while doing the hike.
On the way up you can be refreshed by taking a shower under one of the waterfalls in crystal clear spring water. Those that are booked in at Magoebaskloof Getaway are welcome to do the hike at no additional cost an no day visitors are allowed.
This hiking trail goes right to the top of the farm and will take you about 2 to 4 hours if you are fit, but would take a small group about 6 hours if you want to enjoy the beautiful forests and views.
