Kliphuiskloof Trail

Kliphuiskloof Trail

Co-ordinates:  S31⁰ 28′ 29″ E19⁰ 46′ 33″

Grade: 2-4 | Distance: 27km | Duration: At least 6 hours | Category: Self-drive| Cost: R150 per vehicle.

On the old Elandsvlei farm, Kliphuiskloof is a rough circular trail around the Tankwa and Tra-Tra rivers that flow into the Doring River.  The very rocky terrain offers great mountain-driving opportunities.  Although it starts off fairly easy-going, the route changes dramatically for some serious on-the-edge driving.  It’s not for the faint hearted as there are loads of toe-curling moments while you cling to the side of the mountain.

There are lots of viewpoints and the riverbed is a great overnight camping spot.

Getting there

Take the R355 from Ceres and turn left at the Elandsvlei turnoff.
