A few key pointers to walking the Leopard Trail in the heat of the Baviaanskloof Summer
The Trail is fantastic. The toughness of the trail should be noted by hikers, this is not for everyone…
Very fit hikers will find this hike quite easy and less fit hikers will find the tough spots a bit challenging.
I have walked the Whale Trail a number of times, the Fish River and Oorlogskloof once and some other shorter local hikes. The Leopard Trail was a real treat, but I have to say it was a lot tougher than I had expected – the second day in particular – with a lot of up and down and up and down the hills and saddles.
We loved the weekend. The hike is magnificent. The hike is challenging. Great memories. We will give you more feedback when we can walk again(joke).
