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 found it a tough trail with lots of ups and downs and up again but thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the magnificent views from the top and the valley walks and surviving a walk in a thunder and lightning storm.

Day Three of the trail was just my best. I loved the three saddles and their vegetation. The proteas were blooming beautifully. None of us found the trail tough.

Bucketlist Lab takes a walk on the Leopard Trail

Bucketlist Lab is always on the look out for unique and spectacular experiences.  After the fires on the Leopard Trail in December and January, they were the first to call us and ask how soon they could walk the trail.

As Bucket List Lab said after posting this video, “The regrowth after the fires is one of the most exciting times to experience nature.  Having walked the Leopard Trail many times before, we were dead keen to walk the landscape.  The stark landscape was incredible to walk through. The video was taken shortly after the devastating fires. Nature is already at work to restore our beautiful kloof.  Exciting times ahead!”
