We had an absolutely fantastic time at Cedar Falls! What a wonderful place!
We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the scenery and hikes. what stunning spot! The house was most comfortable for our big group and the big supply of wood helped to keep us cosy and warm.
Thank you, we loved our stay and will defiantly be back soon for a complete reset of our mind, body and soul.
Cob Cottage is tranquility at best.
Willem is very helpful and knowledgable.
We loved the peaceful night, clean cottage and awesome surrounds.
Along with some really great photo’s, Hiking South Africa had some very cool things to say about the Leopard Trail. We are committed to making this one of the top multi day slack packing hikes in SA, and it feels great when others are say we are getting it right.
“I loved the route and how each day is different. The overnight facilities is more than sufficient, the staff friendly. Willem made sure we are all happy and went out of his way to tell us tales about the Kloof and the farm. I assume the cold water shower could be an issue for hikers deciding to do the hike in the colder months. The only thing I would change is to have a radio at each camp should there be an emergency”.
In my eye – also staff very friendly, organization excellent. The entire slack pack idea with the black crates worked perfect. They ensure your goods are kept in shade all the time.
The cold water showers I enjoyed – but I can imagine colder months it wont be that easy. I also overheard that there is a plan that cabins are to be build in the future – We actually enjoyed the tent set up. It gave it a different atmosphere.
The route was marked well – here and there you had to think a bit and search for foot prints – but again – it made the hike more enjoyable. The route itself amazing – different every day. We also were lucky with all the flowers blooming, most interesting plants and succulents. I am very impressed overall. Enough water every day as well.
This was my first slack pack ever, and second 5 day hike (otter was first) so difficult to compare and you cannot compare otter with leopard – different hike and scenery – both were amazing. But I cant really give any suggestions – everyday I thought everything worked out so well.
